Aeducation-blog-ed-exec.png recent survey conducted by the Sutton Trust and the Education Endowment Foundation, revealed that 6% of teachers reported using pupil premiums to fill holes in their school budgets. The premium, introduced in 2011 by the Coalition Government, is additional funding allocated to support disadvantaged pupils.

The small, but increasing trend highlights the ever-pressing constraints schools are experiencing with planning and allocating their school budgets.

Operating Leases have become an increasingly attractive funding option for the education sector, helping to provide greater flexibility, given that schools are able to spread the cost.
