Governors managing austerity: HGA meeting 8th June

GOVERNORS MANAGING AUSTERITY

All Governing bodies will have been working on their 2016-17 budgets, many finding it difficult to set a balanced budget.

From next year we will have a National Funding Formula and are likely to have less money. Every Governing Body will operate differently.

This evening is open to all governors to discuss:

  • Making difficult decisions
  • Deciding priorities
  • Reducing staff?
  • Reducing the curriculum?
  • Sharing resources
  • Accessing other funding

Governors will be able to share ideas, listen to others and bring other issues which matter to them.

To Book online: log onto Haringey London via the governors’ Login page http://governors.haringey.gov.uk

Respond now: national funding formula

The Government is consulting on a national funding formula for schools.

This will mean that Haringey schools will lose significant amounts of money and lose the ability to decide on how money is distributed between schools in Haringey.

The consultation period is very short so please discuss it with your governing bodies and respond now:
