The school uses the Department for Education’s (DfE’s) Schools Financial Benchmarking website to find similar schools and then compares their per-pupil revenue and expenditure data against spending at Thorney Close Primary School. This allows the school to identify areas where spending is comparatively high or low. It is important to also understand the story behind the data and to consider it in context.
The Headteacher and School Business Manager work closely when considering financial decisions to help ensure spending is efficient and results in the best outcomes for our pupils.
