Setting the school budget: The role of the governing board

It is the governing boards role to oversee the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent. Setting the school budget is a key part of ensuring this happens.

  • The principles of budget management and how these are used in the school
  • The school’s annual expenditure on staffing and non-staffing and any data against which this can be benchmarked against
  • The school’s internal control processes and how these are used to monitor expenditure and ensure propriety to secure value for public money
