Charging and Remissions

In compliance with the Education Reform Act 1988 and DES circular 2/89, Doubletrees does not make any charge for the cost of materials, books or other equipment. We ask parents to make a voluntary contribution on Parent Pay to cover:
  • Cookery ingredients
  • School visits to places where an admission charge is made
  • DT materials, ingredients, etc.
  • Visits or activities involving public transport, accommodation, subsistence or additional costs
A letter will be sent to parents explaining the cost for trips involving a charge.  No child is ever excluded from such activities if parents cannot afford to contribute. However, parents should be aware that we may not be able to provide such opportunities indefinitely, if costs are not viable.
