Terms and Conditions
WITHDRAWAL AND NOTICE
a) Any parent accepting an offer of a place at the school will be charged a deposit and this will be returned in full without interest when their child leaves the school, unless any balance owing to the school. Parents who fail to take up their child’s place will lose their full deposit.
b) The school requires not less than a full term’s notice in writing, received by the principal not later than three days after the beginning of a term before a pupil is withdrawn from the school. Failing such notice the full fees for the term following withdrawal will be charged. In the Junior Year, the notice period is two terms.
c) The school may in its absolute discretion require a parent to remove a pupil from the school whose attendance, progress or behaviour is unsatisfactory. In such circumstances, the parent shall not be entitled to any refund of the fees due or already paid. Nor shall any refund be due for absence due to illness.
d) The school reserves the right to require a parent to remove a pupil from the school if they knowingly fail to disclose important information about their child’s special educational, medical and social needs. Such information should be advised in writing at least four months before a pupil joins the school.
ATTENDANCE, DRESS AND BEHAVIOUR
a) The parent undertakes to ensure that the pupil attends school regularly throughout each term (dates of which will be published well in advance). All pupils are required to participate in all school subjects including games and other out of school activities, including Saturday matches for school teams.
b) The parent undertakes to ensure that the pupil conforms to such rules of appearance, dress and behaviour as shall be issued by the school from time to time.
c) These undertakings apply equally to pupils over the age of 18.
a) During a pupil’s time in the school, the School Medical Officer shall have unlimited rights to give the pupil’s parents or guardian, the principal or other senior members of the teaching staff such information as he thinks necessary in the pupil’s or the school’s interests.
b) If a pupil requires special medical attention while at school, every effort will be made to obtain the prior consent of the parents or guardian. However, should this be impossible, the school will act “in loco parentis” for urgent treatment (including anesthetic or operation) recommended by a doctor.
a) Parents/guardians accept a place at the school for their son or daughter in the knowledge that data about pupils and their parents/guardians will be collected periodically and stored and processed to allow for the efficient operation of the School. Some pupil data is passed to outside agencies for educational purposes and to the Old Mid-Whitgiftian Association. A full list of the recipients of pupil data, the nature of the data transferred and the intended use of the data, is available for consultation on the school website and at the reception.
b) Parents/guardians accepting a place at the school consent to the School’s use of their child’s photograph and other information relating to their achievements, for promotional purposes. Such information may be published in school literature, on the school website or through other media.
