In this month's webinar we will be discussing the key issues to consider when restructuring your school or academy.
Maximising funding is a crucial part of ensuring success at your academy. Making sure that you are minimising the costs associated with the running of your school will help you to maximise the resources available for educating your pupils. During this webinar, run by James Cowper Kreston, Lorraine answered the following questions:
What sort of areas am I most likely to make savings?
What is the new Selection Questionnaire and how does that fit into OJEU?
How do I go about obtaining value for money and where do I get help?
How could we work together with other academies to get better value for money?
