Benchmarking your school’s financial data

DfE have published their tool for schools to benchmark their income and expenditure against another school or trust.

This service facilitates comparison of income and expenditure with similar schools and academy trusts (and has some useful “Visualisation” features – using benchmarking charts).

To access the DfE’s Benchmarking tool, click here.

I am an enthusiastic proponent of employing this (under-used) management tool (whether via the DfE or otherwise).  If you would like to review any aspect of benchmarking school’s financial data (whether in a MAT context or more generally), do please contact me at or on 017514 499238 for a wider discussion.
