Rethinking school business management

Chaired by Matthew Clements-Wheeler

The education sector is undergoing rapid change and is faced with complex challenges; those tasked with leading – and managing – schools through this complex and turbulent time have their work cut out for them.

More autonomy, increased responsibility, higher demand, greater expectations, changing support mechanisms, decreasing funding, spiralling on-costs and centralisation by growing MATs; effective school business management for the future may require us to rethink current approaches and develop models and frameworks more suited to evolving operational structures.

This panel discussion – chaired by Matthew Clements-Wheeler – seeks to unpick the current educational landscape and explore future possibilities by rethinking school business management.

Take-home points:
The panel will focus on:
  • analysing the current educational landscape – changes and challenges;
  • rethinking core aspects of school business management based on this analysis;
  • embracing business-like attitudes to achieve school effectiveness;
  • unearthing opportunity in unexpected places;
  • overcoming barriers to collaboration;
  • providing a strategic discussion framework for management development within schools.
