The payment of the GP fee covers 24 hour insurance, school journal, photocopying, folders, art materials, paper, charts, library books, crayons and colouring pencils, white boards, handwriting books, gymnastics, guitar, dance, safe cycling lessons, as well as the provision of laptops and iPads for the children.
