Outdoor Learning Services 2021-22

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Children and Young People's Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To agree fees and charges for the academic year 2021-22

Decision:

To approve the charges and fees as listed for the Outdoor Learning Service for September 2021 to August 2022 which will be enacted should the Council recommence residential provision within the year. It has been agreed to increase fees in line with inflation and for a trial period of one year concurrent with the strategic review, to modify the fees and charges for school residential visits into a three season zoning structure.

Reasons for the decision:

Fee levels are reviewed annually in line with the Council’s Fees and Charges Strategy.

The charges and fees for the school year September 2021 – August 2022 were not put forward for approval in September 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and the temporary hiatus in the strategic review.

It is necessary to ensure that there is a fee structure available should the Council, in line with government guidance, decide it is possible to recommence residential provision during the 2021/22 academic year.
