 Full-Time Places

A full-time place at Social Arts for Education costs £6334 per term, excluding Breakfast Club and After-school Club, for a child with a basic level of need. Further costs will apply for children who require specialist therapies, for example Occupational Therapy or Speech and Language Therapy, in addition to their regular curriculum.  Children are able to attend SAFE on a part-time basis (minimum of 4 sessions per week, with a session either being one morning or one afternoon), and fees are charged pro-rata.

 Bursaries

Some families may be able to apply for a bursary.  Bursaries are available at two different levels.

Level 1:  Standard bursary, 37.5% of fees

Level 2:  Families in Urgent Need bursary, 37.6% – 100% of fees, dependent on level of need.

The award of a bursary is solely at the discretion of Social Arts for Education management. Bursaries are awarded on the condition that a child’s attendance does not fall below 90% and other conditions.  Details of how bursaries are awarded are available on our Bursaries Policy.

Our Fees & SAFE’s Charity

Prices shown are from September 2018

Fees are heavily subsidised by the charity (over 60%) and are for parents without support from schools and their local authority only. 

SAFE charges families a standard fee for its tutoring services. Below are the prices for a single sessions, with and without examinations attached.  Most of our students choose to come in on average, two morning or afternoons a week, but some come in for four full days a week.  Our sessions are designed to supplement each student’s own home educated curriculum, which is normally constructed by their family.  We can, however, help families and schools devise a curriculum which includes traditional home-education study as well as subjects and skills taught at the Ravenscroft Site.

Please note, a £150 admin fee is required to hold your child’s place for two weeks while you acquire the necessary documents for the trial period.  This also covers costs incurred through individualised transitions.

Help with Payments

Bursaries (for limited times only) are available for families in urgent need.  We are also able to accept Childcare Vouchers and Direct Payments (for people with parental responsibility for a disabled child) as payment for some of our services.  Families eligible for the ‘childcare element’ of Working Tax Credits can also benefit by claiming up to 70% of the costs through HMRC.  Please contact us for more information about government initiatives to help with the cost of fees. For families of students with Statements of Special Educational Needs or EHCPs, please note, fees are not subsidised when commissioned by other bodies.
