Late Collection Charges at Barr View Primary & Nursery Academy

Dear Parents & Carers

Since 2015 we have operated a 'Late Collection Charge' system for those families that are persistently late in collecting their child or children at the end of the school day.  Barr View to support its families does offer a free of charge 10 minute window for families running late, however this will be included in the total if a charge is issued. 

We fully understand that from time to time a child may be collected late from school due to circumstances beyond anyone's control and we will of course support you fully in these circumstances.  However some families persistently collect their child late, being late to collect your child does impact on both your child and the school as staff often have to work last minute additional time or be taken away from training or essential tasks to provide care. 

Should your child be collected late 3 times or more it is likely that a late collection charge will be issued by the academy.  Any fines are used to fund additional fun activities for the children at various point throughout the year, these might include materials for cooking activities, craft activities and play activities.  It is not used to pay staff or to contribute to the running of the academy.

 

Our charges are calculated as follows and are per child - 

Key Stage 1

 

End of School = 3:20pm

3:20pm to 3:30pm 

No cost unless charge issued.  £5 if issued.

3:30pm to 3:40pm

£5 charge

3:40pm to 3:50pm

£5 charge

3:50pm to 4:00pm

£5 charge

4:00pm to 4:10pm

£5 charge

4:10pm to 4:20pm

£5 charge

4:20pm to 4:30pm

£5 charge

 

For every 10 minute window entered into an additional £5 will be added to the charge.  As an example if a KS1 child was collected late at 3:52pm then the total fine would be £20.

 

Key Stage 2

End of School = 

3:30pm

3:30pm to 3:40pm 

No cost unless charge issued.  £5 if issued

3:40pm to 3:50pm

£5 charge

3:50pm to 4:00pm

£5 charge

4:00pm to 4:10pm

£5 charge

4:10pm to 4:20pm

£5 charge

4:20pm to 4:30pm

£5 charge

4:30pm to 4:40pm

£5 charge

 

 For every 10 minute window entered into an additional £5 will be added to the charge.  As an example if a KS2 child was collected late at 4:31pm then the total fine would be £35

 

Nursey

 Nursery operates a little differently to the rest of the school with various start and end times across the week.  The same charging structure will still be used with a £5 charge being applied to every 10 minute window entered into once the 10 minute free window has expired.  

 

Appeals

All issued late collection charges can be appealed by families if they feel they have been treated unfairly by the academy.  All appeals MUST be in writing, marked for the attention of the Head Teacher and emailed to enquiry@barrview.bham.sch.uk
