Property Development, Contracts and Revenue Generation

Description

A primary school shows how the appointment of a school business manager has helped it save money on school buildings and cleaning bills, in this school finance resource.

Mark Tait joined Abbeyfields First and Nursery School in Morpeth, Northumberland, as a school business manager three years ago.

He spends less than half the week at Abbeyfields but has made a massive difference to the school's budget, saving hundreds of thousands of pounds, particularly in buildings provision, improvement and maintenance.

Mark explains how he always gains quotes from local businesses, as well as from the local authority. He has also brought contracts for cleaning and maintenance staff in-house and saved £100,000 on two new outdoor classrooms.
