EDUCATIONAL VISITS

All extra-curricular activities, educational excursions or trips abroad are to be paid in full prior to participating in the activity. The school reserves the right to exclude a pupil from a residential trip if school fees are in arrears. All educational trips and trips abroad will require a non-returnable deposit in order to secure a place. This may vary depending on the type of trip.

ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE

All pupils enrolled at Brighton Waldorf School must have sufficient fluency in English to enable them to access the learning provided. Where a pupil requires additional language support the school may provide those lessons at additional cost to the parent/carer.

EARLY YEARS ENTITLEMENT (EYFE)

We are registered with the Local Authority’s Early Years Free Entitlement (EYFE) scheme for some 2 year olds and all 3 and 4 year olds (based on eligibility). The EYFE applies for the beginning of the term after their 3rd birthday until the end of term in which they are 5.  Entitlement is 15 hours per week that can only be taken within specific hours and is subject to availability. We do also provide the 30 hours entitlement option dependent on eligibility, subject to availability and to be taken within specific times.

OVERSEAS APPLICANTS

All permanent enrolments of Overseas Pupils are subject to the conditions for study in the UK and that the applicant is supported by a relative or legal guardian living in the UK where the applicant is resident.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Brighton Waldorf School welcomes applications from International Students on a short term enrolment basis.

PAYMENT

Tuition fees and other applicable charges are invoiced termly in advance. These are payable on or before the first day of the term to which they apply.

Subject to prior arrangement, payment can be made in equal monthly payments by Direct Debit spread 10 months. These will be payable monthly in advance on the 4th of each month. Where payment is made by Standing Order across 12 months a 5% administration fee is levied.

Additional lessons are normally charged termly in arrears. All such invoices are due for payment upon receipt.

There is no rebate for periods of absence.

LATE PAYMENT

A 1.5% surcharge is levied on all missed payments. If a payment remains outstanding after the end of the month in which it is due the child/children will not be able to return to school until payment is made.

A returned items penalty of £25.00 is charged per effect.

CONTRACT

Parents are required to sign a contract with the school, which outlines the conditions of entry and their responsibilities to the school.  By sending children into school parents signify their agreement to these conditions.

NOTICE TO LEAVE

The school requires one full term’s notice of withdrawal, in writing to the School via enquiries@brightonwaldorfschool.org to be received no later than the first day of the child’s last term at the school; otherwise a full-term fee will be charged.

SCHOOL FEES

School Fees revisions are normally applied for the academic year starting in September. Where possible changes are communicated no later than the start of the summer term prior. The School will use all reasonable endeavours to set fees which will be applicable during the whole of the academic year. However, the School reserves the right to increase fees at any time during the academic year (particularly as a result of matters outside the control of the School).
