Financial Procedures

How do I pay for services at Braywood?

From September 2013 we will be asking every parent to provide £15 a term towards their child's trips and general expenses at school. At the end of the year we will provide you with an end of year report of how that money has been spent.

We only accept cheques, if this is a problem please speak to the Bursar, Sam Moore.  Payment for activities should come to school in a sealed envelope clearly marked on the front with your child’s name and what it is for e.g. gym club. 

Dinner Money

The cost of a school meal is £2.20.

We process handle the administration of school dinner money on behalf of our caterers, this means we record all meals eaten by your child and payments made.  You can pay daily but you may find it more convenient to pay in advance.  If you run into arrears we will let you know – please can you pay reminders as soon as possible as the school will have to pay for your child’s meals in the interim.

Please make cheques payable to Caterlink. 

School Money

We only accept cheques – please make these payable to Braywood CE First School.

PTA Money

Events organised by the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) are channelled via the office too. 

 

Braywood Extended School

Early Bird Clubs

There is no need to book a place in the Early Bird Club, please note for their safety all children must be bought into the Club by an adult.  Record your child’s arrival by signing them in on the attendance record sheet.

We prefer payment per session for this Club.  However as you will be invoiced by the Club Supervisor on a monthly basis for sessions attended, you may chose to pay this way.  We would prefer all payments to be made direct to the Supervisor and recorded in the relevant column on the attendance record sheet. However we do accept payments via the office in sealed, labelled envelopes.

Please make cheques payable to Braywood CE First School. Ensure that your child's name and club are written on the reverse of the cheque.

We accept childcare vouchers and have relationships with several providers already, just ask the Bursar for more information. If you pay large amounts regularly and wish to make direct bank transfers we can discuss setting this up

Squirrel Club

Please ensure you book your child/ren into the Squirrel Club in advance by emailing us with dates and sessions required (i.e. to 4.15 or to 5.30) on braywood@rbwm.org.  We do accept bookings on the day, preferably before lunch to ensure we can plan meals.  Please contact the main office on 01628 623660.

Please ensure you record the time your child/ren leave the Club by signing them out on the attendance record sheet.

The Bursar is responsible for invoicing parents for the Squirrel club on a monthly basis.  Payments for the Squirrel club should be made via the office in an envelope where possible.  Session payments can be made to the Club Assistants but you must ensure you log it on the attendance record sheet.

Please make cheques payable to Braywood CE First School. Ensure that the details of your child and club are written on the reverse of the cheque. 

We accept childcare vouchers and have relationships with several providers already, just ask the Bursar for more information. If you pay large amounts regularly and wish to make direct bank transfers we can discuss setting this up.

Free School Meals

If you think you are entitled to free school meals please let us know and we can help you through the application process.  The current pupil premium is directly linked to free school meals so it will benefit Braywood financially if you apply even if you think your child will eat packed lunches.  All applications are in confidence and your child will not be treated differently.
