Funding the EIP

Initially the EIP was funded by a block grant from the DSG made by the School Forum. Subsequently for the period 2011-2014 funding was based on a subscription of pupil numbers, school by school and in January 2014, the School Forum voted a further grant which will keep the partnership fully funded for the next three year period.
