Strategic Budget Planning
All successful schools and academies should have robust financial planning at the heart of their strategic development plan.
This has never been more important than in the current climate of budget funding cuts.
I have worked with established and potential new start ups, costing staffing structures and producing multi-year budget forecasts, with very little or no prior records to work from.
With careful planning and regular monitoring, I have turned a significant in-year deficit to a balanced budget within a year.
A key to success is being mindful of the strategic direction of the school whilst maintaining the attention to detail and careful monitoring. I work with schools to manage their long-term aspirations, making them possible via vigorous scrutiny of day to day operations and processes.
