Yearly Fee Increases
Each year we review the school’s budget and will agree with the Trustees a fair fee increase.  This increase is communicated by letter to each family at least six weeks before the end of the school year.  Fee increases will come into practice on the 1st of September each year.  We will expect you to change your standing order to reflect this.

Community Supported Places (CSP)
Parents may request a Community Supported Place to provide financial assistance towards fees for their child to attend.  Please request details at initial enquiry step and a form can be provided.  For Kindergarten applications, we will only consider CSPs for full time attendance.


Other Additional Charges

Rechargeable Items
This includes crayons, pens, Eurythmy shoes, performances, musical events, trips etc.  Cost is determined by the cost price of each item/trip.  These are payable for all children as the situation requires and invoiced at the end of each month.

Individual/Support Lessons
Occasionally, your child’s teacher may suggest individual lessons for your child with a support teacher.  A charge of £35.00 is made per lesson to cover costs of the support teacher.

School Lunches
£3.00 per two course meal, where applicable.

Wrap Around Care – Monday to Friday
Breakfast Club is available from 8.00am at a charge of £3.00 per day.  After School Club is available from 3.15pm to 5.30pm at a charge of £7.80 per day.  Both clubs must be booked at Reception weekly in advance.  You will be charged for a late collection fee at After School Club of £15.00 and a charge of £15.00 will be applied if not booked in advance.

Payment of Fees
Fees must be paid by Standing Order on the 1st of each month, in advance.   Fees can also be paid in advance by term or year if preferred.  Please always add the child’s name as reference for any payments made.

Other Charges will be invoiced at the end of each month and become payable within 14 days of issue.

The Iona School Association reserves the right to levy 2% interest on overdue arrears at the end of the month

Non-Payment of Fees and Subsequent Charges
After 30 days non-payment of fees the school will notify the parent and expect payment within 10 days.  Failure to pay this will result in the school sending a reminder and charging a £25.00 administration fee for each subsequent letter sent.  If we elect to carry out this process by email we will charge £7.50 for each email sent to you.

After 60 days of non-payment the school will, after a final letter sent and 14 days’ notice given, send the debt and any subsequent fees onto our debt collector.  We will instruct them to pursue the debt through the court.  We will charge a £50.00 fee for this plus any fees we are charged by the debt collector.  You will also be liable for any court fees that we incur.  Please see Financial Policy for further information.
