Ensuring Robust School Financial Management : Monitoring Budgets and Reviewing Financial and Resource Management


In the current climate all schools are facing financial challenges. This programme of three courses has been designed to increase governor’s knowledge of steps to take to ensure their schools benefit from robust financial and resource management.

Governors are encouraged to attend all three to build up an all-round overview of the school’s financial cycle.


To provide all school governors with:
• an understanding of the financial statutory returns maintained schools are required to complete
• guidance on the types of reports to expect from Headteachers and School Business Managers (SBMs)
• an awareness of the trends arising from schools in financial challenge and school audits
guidance on how to use the SVFS to measure whether their school meets standards for good financial and resource management
It is recommended that attendees also sign up to Ensuring Robust School Financial Management: An overview of School Finances for Governors and Ensuring Robust School Financial Management: Setting School Budgets
