Integrated curriculum and financial planning (ICFP)
We are encouraging schools to plan their curriculum and their finances in a combined exercise, providing free guidance and resources for heads, governors and school business managers to get started with ICFP.
Many schools and trusts manage their budgets well, using their resources expertly to deliver high standards for pupils. This page provides examples of approaches that practitioners have found to be effective.
Read guidance for reviewing your staffing structures and use the tool to check if your school has the right staff to teach its curriculum. Multi-academy trusts (MATs) can use this guidance to consider staffing structures across the MAT.
School resource management: training and peer support
There’s a lot of financial management training and support available to school and trust leaders. This page will help you find and use it. It includes links to useful sector organisations, their training courses and other resources.
