Grants and Financial Support

Although, as a Voluntary Aided School, the Local Education Authority is responsible for "maintaining" St John Baptist School. There are elements of the costs incurred which are the direct responsibility of the Governors of the school, who can, in certain circumstances, recover some of these from parents. Moreover, participation in optional extra activities having cost implications will, as hitherto, only be on the basis of parental choice, and subject to previous agreement as to charges.

In case of financial need, confidential advice will be given by the Headteacher as to the possible remission, or recovery from other sources, of any charges made.
