The following is from our Protocols of Participation.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you require further information.

  • The principle of “reciprocity” underpins the operations of the VLN Primary. It is a requirement that all participating schools will contribute, to enable the sustainability of learning opportunities for all students.
  • Contributions to the VLN Primary can be the provision of an eteacher and programme of learning or project. In addition an annual membership fee will be levied for each participating school. This will be reviewed and set each year by the Governance Group in consultation with schools.

Schools Contributions for 2018 for small groups/individuals will be:
