Update to school Funding Predictor in SBS Online

school Funding Predictor in SBS Online

We have released a new and improved version of the school Funding Predictor.

The new school Funding Predictor allows you to add Free Type lines to cater for more areas of funding. Any Free Type lines you add above the School Budget Share also affects your MFG funding.

We have updated calculations in the background to ensure that our projections for future funding are as accurate as possible, as well as combining years 1-6 to be one field within Prior Attainment.

You also have the option to add an inflation line at bottom of your school Funding Predictor which is cumulative. This line is only available on the Funding Predictor and does not affect reports.

We have also amended the Edit to be an icon in line with all pages in the system.

When converting to the new version of the Funding Predictor, this will clear the current version and you will receive a warning message when you change version on your Budget Settings.

Please see our dashboard for information on how you can apply the new school Funding Predictor to your Budget.

If you have any questions, please contact the SBS Online Service Desk on 0345 222 1551, option 8 or email us at sbsonline@schoolbusinessservices.co.uk.
