20. Uniform Policy
Children attending our school are expected to wear a uniform. Some of the
items required can be purchased from the school and the rest from sepcified
retail outlets. While Devon County Council does not offer financial assistance
with uniform and school equipment expenses, parents can contact the
Education Welfare Service in cases of extreme hardship. Parents unable to
purchase items of uniform or equipment will not be penalised. We operate a
scheme to assist families in need.
21. School Fees and Charges
There is no charge for applying for a place at this school, for admission or for
the provision of education. We will not request donations before or during the
admissions process and any donations made to the school following admission
are entirely voluntary. No activities such as school visits are compulsory. A
policy on charging for activities is available on request from the school and can
be viewed on our website.
