Review & Notice of Increase
Notifications of any increases are given to parents one full term in advance.
Payment Due Date & Method
Payment of fees is due on, or before, the first day of term by Direct Debit. If there is a problem that might prevent this, we do ask, as a matter of courtesy, that you contact our Finance Officer, Miss Sheila Wilkinson, to advise her of the situation: firstname.lastname@example.org
Payment by Instalment
The school operates a scheme through a third party, ‘School Fee Plan’, which offers the facility for payment of fees in monthly instalments by Direct Debit. Parents wishing to take advantage of the scheme are requested to visit www.sfpschoolfees.co.uk for further information.
Withdrawal Notice Period
To withdraw a child from school (other than at the normal leaving date), parents must give a term’s notice or pay a term’s fees in lieu of notice, at such rate as would have been charged for the final term of provision if a term’s notice had been given. For example, if you wish to withdraw your child with effect from the start of the autumn term (i.e. at the start of an academic year), you would need to tell us in writing that you wish to withdraw your child before the first day of the preceding summer term.
Childcare Vouchers and Tax Free Childcare
Holy Cross is registered to receive payments from parents who use Tax Free Childcare and Childcare Vouchers from all companies. Vouchers can be used against tuition fees for nursery children only. For children in reception to year 6, vouchers are accepted but can only be used to pay for out-of-school hours childcare e.g. after-school childcare, breakfast club and teacher-led clubs.
