As you will be aware your son/daughter is studying Design and Technology, Product Design as a GCSE option. It will be necessary for students to pay a contribution towards the cost of materials used during their time in the subject. This will cover the costs for subject specific materials and sundries such as graphical drawing equipment and some materials used for projects during the first two terms of Year 10. It will also cover revision guides and homework booklets for Year 11 exam preparation. Due to the size and nature of final Year 11 projects, additional funding is required to cover the cost of materials, when they begin their final projects.
The cost will be £15 (please make cheques payable to Shropshire Council with child’s name, form and Technology on the back) and students will, of course, be given the opportunity to take work home at the end of their project. We are happy to fund this amount for students who receive free school meals for both Years 10 and 11. However, we would appreciate any contribution you feel you may be able to make towards the balance.
Thank you for your support in this matter.
