If at any time after acceptance of a school place, a child leaves school permanently (or does not start school), one full term’s written notice (excluding holidays) is required to avoid payment of penalty fees. For example:
- If a child leaves at Christmas, notice should be given at the beginning of the Autumn Term on or before 1 September 2017
- If a child leaves at Easter, notice should be given at the beginning of the Spring Term on or before 12 January 2018
- If a child leaves at the end of the academic year, notice should be given at the beginning of the Summer Term on or before 13 April 2018
If a child leaves school without giving proper notice or has given insufficient notice, one whole term’s fees are added to the amount due. Such extra fees may be deducted from any monies due from the school to the parent or the employer.
Please note that Kellett expects parents and not the employers to give the written notice of withdrawal.
