Many thanks for your recent payments for the trip to Barcelona which will take place from Sunday 7th July – Friday 12th July 2019.
Your non-refundable deposit has now been passed onto the travel company. Details of the payment schedule and expected payment dates for the trip can be found below. Could you please adhere to these payments as further instalments need to be paid to the travel company throughout the year. Smaller, interim payments may be made but it is important the running balance is met by the dates shown below as your child’s place may be in jeopardy if we cannot send any payments to the company.
Payments can be paid in cash via the main school office or if your student brings cash into school they can bring it to me first thing in the morning in room WG3. Money should be placed in a sealed envelope with your child’s name, form class, Barcelona Trip and amount. Cheques should be made payable to Seaham High School with your child’s name and form class on the back of the cheque.
Behaviour – If your child’s standard of behaviour should deteriorate to an unacceptable level during the academic year, the school will be left with no other option but to refuse permission for your child to take part in the trip. If this decision is taken, you will lose the full amount of the deposit and risk losing a percentage – and possibly all – of the total cost of the trip including any cancellation fees. The parents/carers of any student who deliberately causes damage to another student’s property or any property while on the school trip will be expected to pay the full cost of repairing or replacing the damage.
Accepting a place for your child on this trip is accepting the terms and conditions of the above.
The Government is advising businesses to prepare for the possibility of the UK leaving the EU on 29th March without having a deal in place.
The most important point for schools in this instance is that, in the case of a no deal Brexit, EU countries will most likely require travellers to have a passport which has at least 6 months left to run on it.
Please all check the expiry date of your child’s passports and consider renewing them early, just in case.
