Payment and Arrears
 
Please book in advance, preferably using 'school money' 
 

If debts are incurred then the school budget has to pay for them. This means that funds which should be spent on the children’s education are used to pay debts incurred by parents, most people in the school or Pre-School community would find this unacceptable.

  • Fees / money owing should be paid within 7 days of receiving the invoice.
  • Preferred method of payment is by 'school money' or cheque payable to Devon County Council.

    All payments are recorded.

  • We appreciate that circumstances change. Parents are encouraged to contact the office staff as soon as possible to enable all parties to come to an agreement regarding payment. Confidentiality will be assured.
  • Where payment is not made as requested above, a reminder will be sent to the

Parent/carer by the administrator. If payment is still not forthcoming a weekly reminder will be sent by e-mail or a letter sent home via the child. If after 4 weekly reminders the balance of the debt has not been reduced, a formal letter from the Head Teacher will be sent to the parent stating that:

-no additional after-school hours will be available

-the child will not be allowed to attend after school club

…until the debt is cleared or a payment plan is agreed.

  • If the debt reaches a figure of £100 or more a formal letter from the Head Teacher will be sent irrespective of weekly reminders
  • If all attempts to recover the debt are unsuccessful the parents will be advised that the school will need to refer the matter to the  Devon County Council Client Support who will follow up with the appropriate action to recover the arrears

*Please note that good communication is the key factor in managing payments and we ask that Parents and carers communicate openly with the school in order for arrears to be managed*
