Notice of Withdrawal
We require one full term’s notice in writing to the Head on or before the first day of term of the intended withdrawal of a pupil. Failing this, fees for the following term are payable in full. No exceptions can be made to this rule.
One term’s notice is also required, in writing to the Admissions Registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org) for certain extras such as ballet, karate otherwise a term’s fee will be charged accordingly.
One term’s notice for all music lessons must be give in writing directly to the music teacher.
Childcare Vouchers and Tax-free Childcare
Parents who joined a childcare voucher scheme on or before the 4th October 2018 can continue to pay by childcare vouchers as they have done before.
However, from the 5th October 2018 no new parents could join a childcare voucher scheme.
A new scheme called tax-free childcare has been set up but it is means tested so not everyone is eligible.
Here is a link which explains everything:
This is the link for parents to check that they are eligible and the application process.
For those who are still eligible, Childcare Vouchers cannot be used to pay for private education, except for terms which start before the child reaches age 5. From age 5 to 15 childcare vouchers can only be used to pay for activities which fall outside the normal timetabled school day (this means the normal hours of compulsory education adopted by the school as appropriate for the age of the child); and on school premises.
To be clear, we are not allowed to accept CCVs for extra-curricular activity that take place off-site or during the school day including Saturday morning sports clubs. Neither can CCVs be used to pay for holiday activities run as private enterprises by individual members of staff.
Hurlingham School will, therefore, only accept CCVs for the following:
- Part payment of School fees for terms which start before the child reaches age 5
- Tea Club
- After-school clubs which are included on the termly bill and for which payment is made to Hurlingham School.
In order for us to accept CCVs you will need to inform Mrs Driver before the end of the term before you intend using them.
Hurlingham School is registered with the following CCV providers:
- Fair Care Services
- RG Childcare
- All Save Childcare Vouchers
Payment of Fees
Fee invoices are sent out at the end of term, and fees are due and payable no later than the first day of term.
In the event that fees are not received on or before the first day of term, the following procedures will be followed:
A reminder letter and duplicate invoice is sent out at the end of the first week of term. This letter will also explain that an interest charge will be applied if the fees are not received by the following Monday.
A replacement invoice will be sent out towards the latter part of this week to include an interest charge of 2.5%.
A replacement invoice will be sent out towards the latter part of this week to include an interest charge of 2.5%. In this letter mention should also be made that if the fees are not paid in full prior to the half-term break, the child or children will not be permitted to return to School after half-term until the debt is settled in full, including any additional interest charges.
In the event that a parent requests leniency, it may be appropriate for the School to make a special allowance based on the individual circumstances which may allow for a longer period for payment or even a period of reduced fees in the event of serious financial hardship.
