Budget Pressures Toolkit for Schools

With more and more pressure being put on school budgets due to factors including inflated costs, increase in pension contributions and National Insurance, Herts for Learning has developed a ‘Budget Pressures Toolkit’ aimed at providing and sharing information about how to manage school’s finance in these circumstances.

Budget pressures toolkit for schoolsThe toolkit brings together key questions and approaches intended for the senior leadership team, governors and school business managers (SBMs) to help each school develop bespoke solutions to the budget pressures currently across the system.

It pinpoints areas for schools to consider and focus on key issues that are affecting schools in the coming financial year. People are encouraged to add to the toolkit and it will act as a central resource of best practice across Hertfordshire.

Thought-provoking video clips, of headteachers, SBMs and HfL colleagues are available to aid reflection and could be a useful input for discussion and training.

The new resource is on the Herts for Learning website and is free for all schools.
