Annal Nayyar reports on latest Departmental advice to help schools set out their policies on charging and remission for school activities and visits

Sections 449-462 of the Education Act 1996 sets out the law on charging for school

activities in schools maintained by local authorities in England. Academies (including free

schools, studio schools and university technical colleges) are required through their

funding agreements to comply with the law on charging for school activities.

This advice has been written to provide at-a-glance information and complements the

information given in section 7.5 of the Governors Handbook. This advice accurately

reflects the terms of the Education Act 1996, but it is not a substitute for those terms.
