Subscription & Pricing: Funding
Core budgets are the most typical source of funding for Espresso in 2010-11, as ring-fenced grants are being phased out and funds are being distributed direct to schools. This gives schools more freedom and flexibility, opening up more options to pay for Espresso.
Some schools allocate new Pupil Premium funds as Espresso is an additional provision that can address specific pupils' learning needs. And independent research has shown that Espresso is ideal for use with many different kinds of learners. Read our flyer [PDF] to learn how Espresso can assist in matching your Pupil Premium requirements.
In addition, some schools use money raised by PTAs, local fundraising schemes and sponsorships to support the purchase of Espresso.
