Additional information:

It goes without saying that the highest standards of dress and behaviour will be expected from each student in accordance with the JFS School Rules stated in the Sixth Form Diary.

In order to cover the expenses of this visit, we are requesting a voluntary contribution of £20 from parents of students who will be involved Please note that, while the School always strives to keep the cost of visits to a minimum, certain costs are sometimes unavoidable. These may include: ticket or entrance fees for museums, external provider fees (e.g. field study centres), coach hire or train fares; the cost of supply cover for the classes of teachers accompanying the visits and security. The school has some limited funds which are used to subsidise some visits in order to make the cost more reasonable for parents.

If you are willing for your child to go on this visit, please log in to your ParentPay account to make payment and to give consent, no later than Friday 7 July. By doing so you are agreeing to the following (please read the details about the Medical Form carefully):

·         I have submitted a Medical Form for my child and the details are unchanged. If the Medical Form held by the School requires updating please download a blank Medical Form from the School Website and complete and return it to JFS Reception.

·         My child has not, to my knowledge, been in contact with any contagious or infectious diseases or suffered from anything in the last four weeks that may be or may become contagious or infectious.

·         I shall liaise with my child’s teacher if I am unable to meet the cost.

·         I understand the arrangements and accept, as a parent, my responsibility in ensuring that my child complies with them.

The Governors wish to make it clear that, in line with the School’s Charging Policy, no student will be omitted from this activity if his/her parents are unable or unwilling to help meet the costs of the visit.  If, however, the School does not receive the support of parents generally in this area, it may not be possible to hold the visit.

·         I understand the arrangements and accept, as a parent, my responsibility in ensuring that my child complies with them.

Should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me in the first instance.

Yours sincerely

Ms L Williams

Head of Faculty for Humanities
