Securing Long Term Financial Viability for your School led by Philippa Ollerhead


Is your school’s current staffing and organisational structure giving you the best chance to provide excellence in Education within the constraints of your budgets? 

With decreasing annual budgets, school leaders now face unprecedented challenges. Many are seeking to improve educational standards, albeit with fewer resources, whilst ensuring long term and sustainable financial viability.

This workshop will give you the tools to review your current operational structures. By analysing internal teaching, learning and support structures you can develop an operational model, which is both optimal to present circumstances and also sustainable into the future.


  • You will learn how to analyse your current teaching and support staff structures to identify areas where savings can be made
  • You will have the opportunity to learn about financially efficient school structures and optimum ways to structure your school / MAT.
  • You will learn how to develop a school / MAT re-structure plan to drive through efficiencies and savings that don’t compromise teaching and learning.
  • You will learn strategies to avoid the common mistakes often made when reviewing teaching and support staff structures.
  • You will learn how to lay the best “groundwork” early; to ensure any subsequent restructure / redundancies don’t get ensnared or derailed by the usual HR issues.

This event is suitable for Primary Headteachers, Deputies, Business Managers and Governors.

SPECIAL OFFER* – additional places can be booked for just £40 per person.

*Book before 30th September to receive the discount (usual price is £65 per person).
