PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOW ONLY TAKING APPLICATIONS FOR TRIPS TAKING PLACE IN 2019/20 ACADEMIC YEAR
PLEASE READ THESE GUIDELINES BEFORE COMPLETING OUR FORM.
We help with the cost for Lambeth-resident pupils from low income households so that they may participate fully in school trips:
may not be used to reduce the costs of the trip for every child but
instead should be used to subsidise the costs of those for whom cost is
genuinely a barrier to participation.
School should ensure through its own budget (or other sources) that no
child eligible to participate will be left behind because of inability
- We only accept applications
for children Key Stage 2 and above (i.e. Early Years and Key Stage 1
classes are ineligible to apply).
School should be certain that those children who have chosen not to
participate in the educational field trip have opted out for reasons
other than financial concerns.
School should have a stated policy that it is the School’s expectation
that all eligible children participate in educational field trips and
that these trips form part of the broader curriculum.
should have a system where children begin paying in instalments well in
advance of the educational field trip taking place.
- The costs of the trip should be reasonable.
- Applications should be submitted at least 20 weeks before date of trip and prior to any letters sent out to parents detailing the final costs of the trip and requesting payment.
can only award a bursary of up to 50% of the actual cost a standard
parent is paying. The full bursary must be passed onto the Lambeth
resident pupils eligible for Pupil Premium.
A school is organising a 4 day trip that will cost the school £300
per pupil. Through PTA fundraising, the school is able to subsidise
the trip to ALL parents so that a full-paying parent only pays £250.
The Foundation can then contribute up to 50% of this cost as a bursary
for children eligible for Pupil Premium. In this example, the
Foundation could contribute £125 towards the school trip, so that the
Pupil Premium parent would only pay £125.
