Due to our unique nature and setting within the MOD, King Richard School is not funded as a typical UK school would be. Funding comes through the Defence budget and directly through the Directorate for Children and Young People (DCYP). As such there is no direct funding for certain areas that would be statutory in UK, such as Pupil Premium and Y7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium. Whilst funding is not direct for these areas, pupils who would receive such funding in a typical UK setting are well resourced to enable them to make outstanding progress based on their starting points.
