School Financial Benchmarking

Ravensfield Primary School recognises the benefits in using benchmarking information to learn from others in implementing changes to spending patterns to help deliver educational priorities.

As part of the annual budget setting exercise, the School reviews benchmarking data. The extent and depth of review depends on what the data reveals compared to previous reviews and the School’s current circumstances. The more significant areas of spend, i.e. staffing costs, are reviewed more frequently than others. In order to obtain comparative data, the School uses a number of sources, including:

  • The government financial benchmarking site  -
  • The Arbor annual benchmarking report

The information is used to determine how the School compares with other similar establishments and forms the basis against which the setting of the current budget is challenged.
