Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent is one of the three core functions of every governing board.
This course will be of interest to those governors who are members of the school’s resources/ finance committee. It will summarise the duties of the governing board in relation to the management of the school budget.
An experienced finance officer will explain the relationship between governors and professional staff, in the context of formulating spending plans. The headteacher’s role in the management of the budget will be outlined; this will be compared to the governors’ strategic role.
Governors of academies and free schools are welcome to attend this general course however if something more specific is required this can be arranged separately - please contact us for further details.
