A secondary school which has saved more than Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£500,000 by bringing many of its operations in-house shares some of its money-saving secrets, in this school finance resource.
School Business Manager Tracy Jackson has a Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£9 million budget to run Ossett School in West Yorkshire. Here she describes how she makes every penny count and always shops around for the best value for money.
Tracy has saved the school hundreds of thousands of pounds by using in-house staff for two major refurbishment projects. She and her staff have also seen massive savings by bringing payroll, HR, staff cover and ICT support in-house.
Ossett School also makes the most of its facilities by opening the doors of the sports hall, pool and pitches to its local community - making a decent profit at the same time.
