ABOUT HERBIES

FINANCIAL MATTERS

At Herbert Hurd Primary School, we take financial management seriously. We understand the importance of responsible budgeting and financial planning, and we work hard to ensure that our resources are used effectively. Our financial management team is highly skilled and experienced, and they are committed to ensuring that every dollar is spent wisely. We believe that good financial management is essential to the success of our school, and we are proud of the work that we do.

THE NATURE OF SCHOOL FINANCES

The state currently employs and pays the salaries of less than 50% of our staff. In addition to these salaries, our school receives a small annual grant / subsidy, (currently about 1,5% of annual budget). This is the total contribution from the state. Clearly the income above falls way short of what is required to operate effectively. In order to maintain our standards and facilities, additional capital is required. This is acquired by charging school fees, fundraising, rental of premises, sponsorships, and so on. In order to maintain the excellent standards and facilities that we have and to maintain a favourable teacher: learner ratio, the school relies on all parents meeting their financial commitments.  In this regard we are proud that we have maintained a payment rate of greater than 94% over THE PAST FEW YEARS.  It is imperative that our parents continue this responsible attitude so that we are enabled to continue providing quality education.

FINANCIAL COSTS

SCHOOL FEE (DETERMINED ANUALLY)

Over the years, Herbert Hurd Primary School has accumulated a high standard of academic, sporting and extra-mural facilities for the use and benefit of our pupils. Most of these developments have been financed by the parents.  Therefore, it is essential that all families meet their financial obligations to the school as this financial support plays a vital role in developing and maintaining standards.  School Fees are set annually by the parents at an annual general meeting (AGM), normally during October/ November, when the School Governing Body (SGB) presents the budget for the following year. Accounts are issued at the end of each month.  These fees are payable to the school via the class teacher, directly to the Secretary or by debit order, and a receipt will be issued.  School fees are charged for eleven (11) months of the year only (end of January to end of November).

 

ENROLMENT FEE

On enrolling and accepting of your child to Herbert Hurd Primary, an enrolment fee will be levied.  This fee is not refundable – it will be used to cover your stationery fee the following year.

 

STATIONERY FEE

The stationery fee will be due on issue of books at the beginning of the year.

 

FACILITIES AVAILABLE FOR PARENT FUNDING

 

Music lessons, Remedial lessons

 

All monies must be sent to the office in a sealed envelope bearing the child’s name, room number, the amount and the purpose of the payment.  Please send the exact amount whenever possible. We trust that the information in this section of the Family Information Manual is comprehensive.  However; if there is anything that you do not understand or on which you would like clarification, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

 

We thank you for your cooperation in making Herbert Hurd an effective and treasured school.
