A full term’s notice of intention to withdraw a pupil from the Stephen Perse Foundation at the end of a term must be given in writing to the Head of Junior School. If such notice is not given, the full term’s fees for the following term are liable to be paid. A full term’s notice to discontinue individual music or speech lessons is also required, on the same conditions.
Any property of value, such as musical instruments, watches, fountain pens, calculators, mobile phones and bicycles, should be clearly named. Please note that all musical instruments, which are used in school, must be insured by parents for accidental damage, loss or theft. This applies to instruments which are hired from the School, as well as pupils’ own instruments.
Pupils are responsible for the safekeeping of any money brought to school. Any sum in excess of £3 which, exceptionally, has to be brought should be entrusted to the Form Teacher or the Junior School Office until the pupil leaves at the end of the day.
The normal method of communication with parents is via School Post and email, unless there are exceptional circumstances which prevent this from being possible.
End of year reports on pupil progress are distributed electronically via a secure website.
