WHAT ARE THE FEES?
Read Academy is an independent All-through Muslim school therefore fees are required to be paid for every child that attends.
The annual fee for our early years and primary school is a single transparent £3999.
The annual fee for our secondary school is £4200.
There is no additional ‘one off intake fee’ and no ‘annual admin fee’.
Holding deposit is a one off £500 (refundable upon child leaving the school following the school’s withdrawal procedure).
WHEN AND HOW MUCH DO WE PAY?
Parents / Carers have the option to pay the school fees annually or per term.
|Payment Type||EYFS & Primary||Secondary|
|One Payment||£3,999 (per year)||£4,200 (per year)|
|The Payments||£1,333 (per term)||£1,400 (per term)|
Parents that wish to pay the whole year fee in advance, will be eligible for a discount of £100. Other payment arrangements can be made. For further information, please contact the school office.
Fees are payable one term in advance.
The deadline for school fees to be paid can be found on our school’s academic calendar 2020-2021.
WHAT IF I CANNOT PAY THE FEES?
We expect everyone to meet their obligations in full without exception. Unfortunately, we are not able to waive any fees or provide any scholarships. Parents on benefits or a low income can contact UK Islamic Education Waqf who may be able to help with payment. Late payment of fees may lead to a child not being able to attend school. Please contact the school in advance if you are unable to pay by the due date.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A PAYMENT?
Fees paid in instalments per term MUST be paid by the given deadline. If we do not receive the fees in clear funds by this date, we will immediately send parents a reminder letter, requesting that payment is made within a given deadline, usually of a week. If payment is not made in the given deadline, the second and third letter will inform parents that unless full payment is received by the given date, we will consider taking legal action against them for the full recovery of the said amount, and parents will also have to refund the full recovery of the legal fees incurred. If in the extreme case those parents fail to settle the above amount within the next two days, the matter will be referred to our solicitors who will in turn refer the matter to collection agents to recover the amount on our behalf.
Please Note: Every reminder we send out will incur a late payment fee of £50, and we will include the £50 fee to the outstanding amount.
ARE FEES REFUNDED FOR UNAUTHORISED ABSENCE?
Any child who is, without prior written permission from the Head teacher, absent from class for 2 weeks or portions thereof will receive a letter requesting an explanation. If the child remains absent for a 3rd week or portions thereof without adequate explanation, the child’s place may be offered to others on the waiting list without further warning. Any fees paid will not be refunded under such circumstances.
WHAT IS A WRITTEN WITHDRAWAL NOTICE?
Parents must give a full term’s withdrawal notice before withdrawing a child from the school, or a term’s notice fee will be payable in lieu. Notice given by parents must be submitted in writing using the Withdrawal Notice Form available from the office and received by the school. Notice given orally or to any other person will not be considered valid.
E.g. If you intend to withdraw your child in September, notice must be given by Term 2 (April).
CAN I RECEIVE A REFUND OF FEES?
Fees will not be refunded or waived for absence through sickness, if a term is shortened, a vacation extended, or for any other cause.
