Description School governors and leaders are under increasing pressures to make sure they direct the school’s resources to activities that deliver maximum educational outcomes and best value for money. In times of budget restraints and sometimes income reduction, this becomes more challenging and governors need to scrutinise budget allocations more critically. A cost centre management approach to the organisation of finances facilitates easy interrogation of financial information and assists in informing appropriate decisions going forward
