I chaired a meeting of the Finance sub-committee of school governors last night. We’ve recently received the “pack” from the local authority for us to produce a 3-year budget for the school.
Uncertainties abound! Just before Christmas there was an almighty row going on about proposed changes in the schools funding formula in Warwickshire, but the Conservative administration suddenly withdrew these so leaving the status quo in place for now – but for how long? Also, as a primary school with a nursery class, we’ve been told that the funding formula for early years provision will change for 2009/10, but no details as to how this might affect us. Yet the school is asked to produce detailed line-by-line budgets covering the next 3 years. Can this really make sense?Leave a comment
