Finance

Governors, in maintained schools and academies, are responsible for "overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent", a duty which comes from statutory regulations and is reflected in the DfE Governors' Handbook. This section provides articles and guidance relating to how governors discharge this vital aspect of their role.

Apprenticeships in schools – new DfE guidance

In April 2017 the government changed the funding mechanism for apprenticeships in England. As a consequence many schools and academies are now required to contribute to the Apprenticeship Levy. New guidance, published by the Department for Education, in June 2018, provides information on what apprenticeships are, how to access them, how they can contribute to improving the skills within the school workforce, and how the Apprenticeship Levy and public sector target apply to schools.
