School Financial Information & Benchmarking Spending
We are asked to publish on our school’s website whether any member of staff receives a salary of £100,000 or receives increments of £10,000. This is to confirm no member of staff is paid this figure.
School Financial Benchmarking
The school uses the Department for Education’s (DfE’s) Schools Financial Benchmarking website https://schools-financial-benchmarking.service.gov.uk/school/detail?urn=108342&openOnly=true to find similar schools and then compares their per-pupil revenue and expenditure data against spending at Swalwell Primary. 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 Business Manager work closely with the Chair of the Resources Committee when considering financial decisions and the Leadership Team are also consulted when developing the systems and processes the school has in place to help ensure spending is efficient and results in the best outcomes for our pupils
