Times are going to get harder! That’s the cry we are hearing, and we are already starting to see this reflected in our decision-making. Schools will need to commence their budget setting activities early in the New Year, and it will be a challenge to set affordable and sustainable budgets in the medium term. This programme will present a process for setting budgets that is entirely focused on educational outcomes and maintaining a modern, fit for purpose education delivery model in the medium term. A must for every school concerned about how best to "make ends meet".
It would be helpful if delegates could reflect on their schools' educational priorities and budgetary pressures before coming to this event.
