Financial Benchmarking for Schools

Financial Benchmarking allows schools to check how their finances compare with other similar schools or multi-academy trusts.

Benchmarking helps schools to plan and to make beneficial changes.

For school budgets, there are 4 main cost areas:

  • Staff

  • premises (for example, building maintenance)

  • occupation (the cost of occupying the school building, for example, energy and water)

  • supplies and services (for example, stationery, books and examination fees)


Benchmarking helps schools:

  • look at spend in these areas overall, as well as sub-categories of spend

  • compare their spend with other similar schools (or academy trusts)

  • inform their school development process

Benchmarking helps schools to consider how to use their resources to support high-quality teaching and the best education outcomes for their pupils.

Benchmarking helps schools to connect with other schools or trusts to discuss challenges and successes. This can help schools consider whether:

  • their resource allocations are working for them

  • they can improve outcomes by doing things differently


Benchmarking also allows parents and others to check how the finances at Fynamore School compare with other similar schools or multi-academy trusts. You can access the Department for Education details for our school on Gov.UK by clicking the link below:
