Primary school subsidies are granted for up to 50% of the value of the performance. They are assessed using a sliding scale that takes into account distance (in kms) from Melbourne GPO, the percentage of students who receive EMA, the numbers of students enrolled in a school and the presence of other factors including drought, bushfire, unemployment, disability, new migration, isolation from other schools and lack of space.
