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.
