When the pennies don’t add up


Stephen Mitchell, Chief operating officer, Spencer Academies Trust

School leaders have little room to manoeuvre as budgets become tighter. Evidencing impact of additional funding is taking centre stage and staffing continues to present challenges. New skills and new ways of thinking are required to manage staff, maintain buildings, ensure efficiency and generate revenue to mitigate the impact of cuts on staff and students.

This session looks at:
  • Tracking finances and promoting good financial health.
  • Creative ways to manage your budget, facilities and your staff.
  • Latest thinking on long-term financial planning.
  • Demo of a successful financial management model.
