Finance and Insurance

FINANCE
 
Our school has a well-deserved reputation of providing an outstanding education for all of our pupils. We were judged by OFSTED to be outstanding in the previous two inspections, however, funding through national policy has shifted to areas which are seen as “more socially deprived”. Our area is not seen as socially deprived, however, we feel that it consists of very caring, hard-working families, all struggling to meet the ever-increasing costs of supporting themselves. This however does have a huge impact on the funding we receive.
 
This means that we have to make sure that we spend our limited resources well and we do this by concentrating our expenditure on making sure that your children are taught by excellent teachers and support staff and by making very careful decisions about the resources and services we buy. This is demonstrated by the financial reports below.
 
Previously part of Plym Academy Trust,  we became part of Westcountry Schools Trust on  1st September 2019. 
 
 
INSURANCE
Our insurance is arranged centrally by Westcountry Schools Trust. It protects the Governors and Staff at the school, against their legal liabilities to its employees and to the public (this includes parents, pupils and visitors). This liability is in force for school organised activities in the U.K. including extra-curricular activities and educational visits.

The school does not carry insurance to cover children’s, employees and visitors personal belongings. Parents are therefore advised that the school cannot accept responsibility for articles brought on to the premises.
