SBS School Finance Forum – Next Date!

Finance Forum

We have a NEW DATE this month for our next School Finance Forum. Our forum is free to attend and will provide information for Headteachers, School Business Managers and Finance Staff of Primary, Special and Secondary Schools.

Did you know SBS holds forums for school staff? Usually held at our venues, these sessions are a great way of networking and being able to speak to other schools to see how they deal with their daily challenges.

Hosted by Christine Partridge from SBS, this month’s session will cover the following topics:

  • Importance of SLAs and policies in educational institutions
  • How the above contributes to quality education
  • Guidance and discussion on the review process

Our next date is on Tuesday 21st July 2020 (10:00-11:00) and will be delivered remotely via Microsoft Teams.

We understand that most of you will be working from home so please don’t feel the need to be dressed smartly! And you are welcome to attend whether or not your computer has video capability. Additionally, if your kids run into the room, we don’t mind – the more the merrier (and we’re in the same boat ourselves).

Places are limited so schools are advised to book now.

You can see the full agenda/timings and book your place via the following link:
