My child school asks for compulsary contibutons. Where could I find the text of the legal document that refers to contributions, please WP?
Sections 449-462 of the Education Act 1996
list the prohibitions and specific exemptions. It's convoluted language, but it essentially prohibits asking for contributions for normal education (s451) unless it is made clear that the contributions are voluntary (s460). There are exemptions for individual or small group music tuition, out-of-hours trips beyond the curriculum, etc.
Have they put this in writing?
