Dear parent/carers and pupils
I’m sure, like me, you will be reflecting on how good it would have been to be travelling to Paris with your friends and teachers. I hope over time, we’ll be able to organise something else in the future on a similar scale and make it a special school trip.
As the date for travel has elapsed, our Travel Company (Equity) are now legally obliged to refund the school the amount paid. If everything was ‘normal’ (pre –covid 19) we should have a refund within 14 days however due to the updated information from the Competition and Market Authorities (CMA) this could take much longer.
I find this unsatisfactory and have discussed this with City of Edinburgh Council who have been very supportive. We have therefore made an arrangement that means, unless we can’t get into the our school this week or there is a problem with transactions from CEC to our school, we should be able to refund what you paid in this week.
