The Governors operate a policy of not charging for any activity provided by the school. However it may be that a voluntary contribution will be requested. If a parent is unable to contribute this will not prevent their child from undertaking the visit or activity. If however the proportion of parents not contributing was of a reasonable size then the visit or activity could well be cancelled. We aim to keep the cost of any voluntary contributions small thanks to donations from the ‘Friends of Wykeham ‘.
Music tuition provided through the LEA music service does however incur a charge.
Extended Schools Clubs, i.e. Breakfast Club & Stay and Play Club do incur a charge. Wykeham School accepts Edenred childcare vouchers. Please contact the office for a full list of fees or visit the Extended Schools section on this website.
In providing for children identified as having special educational needs, both with and without statements, the school aims to
A child is deemed to have special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty which calls for special provisions to be made different to that provided for their peers. You will be informed if your child meets this criteria. Nationally about 20% of children may have special needs at some time during their school life. The role of the school is to identify children’s individual needs, make provision for them and where appropriate refer to outside agencies. Mrs Thorp is the SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) at Wykeham.
The staff at Wykeham School accept that pupils with special educational needs are the shared responsibility of the whole staff.
