Values Statement

The Howard School is proud of its Christian ethos and values. Our pupils are proud to be responsible, thoughtful and motivated people who strive to do their best.

As a Church of England school, the leadership, its teaching and the experiences it offers, will be underpinned and rooted in our Christian values, and in particular friendship, compassion, forgiveness and trust.

This policy takes guidance from the DFE Policy – ‘Charging for School Activities’ and Local Authority guidance. Sections 449-462 of the Education Act 1996 set out the law on charging for school activities in schools maintained by local authorities in England.

This guidance complements the information given in “A Guide to the Law for School Governors” (Chapter 23) and reflects the terms of the Education Act 1996. This Policy will be reviewed on an annual basis by the School’s Finance Committee and will be adjusted in line with new Government or Local Authority recommendations. It sets out the School’s position on charges, remissions and lettings.
