We hope you have enjoyed the sunshine and had a well-earned break. We have been busy planning lots of exciting things over the summer and look forward to sharing more with you soon! But first we wanted to remind you of a few important announcements from before the summer.
  • Did you see that you can now utilise the new standardised Academy Chart of Accounts in SBS Online? This has been developed by the government with the potential to save academies and MATs precious time. Make sure you’re up to speed.
  • Did you see that we also have made enhancements to our Funding Predictor? This includes the new feature of being able to create free type lines to match your funding statement. Take a look at the other ways we have developed our Funding Predictor to improve accuracy.
  • The government also made some adjustments to the CFR Framework earlier this year. Ensure you know how this affects your maintained school.
  • Teacher pension rates are increasing but the government have announced they will fund this increase. Have you worked out if this grant will cover your school's costs?
As always, if you have any questions, please contact the service desk on 0345 222 1551 • Option 8, or email We will be releasing blogs throughout the year with budgeting tips for schools and MATs with suggestions on how you can ensure that you are prepared for the year ahead.
