Education Reform (Northern Ireland) Order 1989

In conforming to the requirements of the Education Reform (Northern Ireland) Order 1989, the policy of the Board of Governors is as follows:

  • That no charge be made for materials, books, equipment or clothing for use in connection with the statutory curriculum.
  • That a charge be made to parents/guardians of a child involved in damage to or loss of school property.
  • To request voluntary contributions from parents for school activities, in or out of school time, for which compulsory charges cannot be levied but which can only be provided if there is sufficient voluntary funding.  No child will be omitted from an activity on the basis that his/her parents or guardians have not made a contribution.  However, if sufficient voluntary contributions are not forthcoming it will be the responsibility of the school to decide whether the activity may or may not take place.
  • To delegate to the Principal the determination of any case arising from the implementation of this policy.
