Applicants will be considered as candidates for admission and entry to Greenfield School when the Registration Form has been submitted and the non-refundable Registration Fee(s) paid. The registration fees are not refundable in any circumstance, regardless of whether the child is subsequently offered a place at Greenfield School or not. This includes a situation where an offer is not made because the school is deemed unsuitable for the child, or by parent choice not to pursue a place. Admissions will be subject to the availability of a place and the child and parents satisfying the admission requirements at the time.
In advance of entry, the following must be submitted on request: A deposit of either £250 (if joining Little School) or £500 (if joining Reception – Year 6). The child’s birth certificate (to be witnessed and a copy made for retention). One recent photograph of the child (for retention). Any court orders, including adoption certificates and any Educational Psychologist reports. There are further requirements for moving from Little School into Reception. Further details are given in the Registration and Admissions Policy.
Deposits are held until the end of the pupil’s final term at Greenfield, unless otherwise specified in the Registration and Admissions Policy. The deposit is liable to forfeiture if the accepted place is not subsequently taken up.
All fees payable are set by the Board of Governors; one term’s notice of any change is normally given at the end of the spring term, but the Governors reserve the right to increase fees at other times. The School reserves the right to contact the child’s present school for educational reports and confirmation that all contractual obligations have been met.
The School reserves the right to pass on educational reports and confirmation that all contractual obligations have been met, including whether or not there are any outstanding fees, to the child’s future school, whether actual or proposed.
Accounts shall be paid in full on or before the first day of each term. Interest will be charged on payments at a rate of 5% if fees remain unpaid for longer than one week after the first day of term.
A full term’s notice (or three months’ notice for Little School) in writing or payment of a term’s fees in lieu is required if a pupil is to be removed from Greenfield. Failure to do so will result in the school pursuing a term’s fees; exceptions cannot be made.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure that during their time at Greenfield pupils who seem to demonstrate specific learning difficulties are referred to appropriate agencies after consultation with parents, the school cannot take responsibility for learning difficulties subsequently diagnosed.
The Headmistress reserves the right to request the removal of a pupil from Greenfield; a full term’s notice will normally be given. Admission and subsequent attendance at Greenfield School of registered children will be conditional on acceptance of the above conditions and of the rules and requirements detailed in the Greenfield.
