Community-Supported Places (CSP)
Parents may request the availability of a community-supported place on a reduced fee when applying to the school. A ‘Community-Supported Place’ form should be completed and returned to the School Administrator. You will be asked to attend an interview at the school and a decision will be made as soon as possible afterwards. Any community-supported place is based on evidence of your gross annual income which will trigger a stepped percentage reduction in fees. Families applying for CSP’s and part-time places in the Kindergarten must bring their child for minimum 3 days per week.
OTHER CHARGES (ITEMS NOT INCLUDED IN SCHOOL FEES)
This includes crayons, pens, Eurythmy shoes, performances, musical events, trips out etc. Cost is determined by the cost price of each item/trip. Payable for all children as the situation requires. Invoiced at the end of each month.
Occasionally, your child’s teacher may suggest individual lessons for your child with a support teacher. No charge is made for these lessons, but a £25-35 donation per lesson, or however much you can afford ,would be much appreciated to help cover the costs of the support teacher.

Non payment of fees and subsequent charges
After 30 days non-payment of fees the school will notify the parent and expect payment within ten days.
Failure to pay this will result in the school sending a reminder and charging £20 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 you £50.00 fee for this.
You will be liable for any court fees that we incur.
