Does the School Help Fund the Guitar Tuition?

Some schools have a budget to help with music tuition, this is often covered by Pupil Premium. Please contact your School Office or Head of Music to find out if funding is available for your child.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Pupil premium funding is available to: local authority maintained schools, including special schools and pupil referral units (PRUs).
