Charging and remissions policy


Schools must have a charging and remissions policy in place to charge for any activity. Use our model policy to tailor one specific to your needs

Applicable for maintained schools and nurseries, academies and free schools.

Updates made in this version are described below.

  • Section 6: wording changed around travelling time.
  • Section 8: removed reference to limit of four pupils for music tuition (applicable in Wales but not England).

Included within the text are guidelines that will help you understand what you need to add to each section. 

  • Blue boxes with advisory notes that can be deleted after you have finished writing the policy.
  • Grey text that indicates where you need to fill in certain details, such as your lunch arrangements.

The charging and remissions policy must be published on the school website.
