REGULATIONS GOVERNING CHARGING PROCEDURES
Education provided in maintained schools should be free and no pupil’s education should be affected by his or her parent’s unwillingness or inability to pay or to contribute towards the cost of a pupil’s education. A Governing Body cannot charge for activities occurring wholly within school time and for the purposes of the National Curriculum with the exception of individual or group music tuition. Charges may be levied for board and lodging in relation to residential trips.
Full guidance and further details can be found in this DfE link:
The Governing Body cannot charge for activities undertaken during school hours in relation to the National Curriculum. Non-residential school trips are likely to be funded by the receipt of voluntary contributions through our pupil premium funding and no pupil shall be excluded from activity through unwillingness or inability to contribute payment(s).
