Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent. How do you know you are managing and monitoring the budget effectively

The format for the sessions are as follows - About 2 weeks before each session participants will be sent a specific focus based on the theme as above. Each school will have 10 minutes to share what their school does with 2 other schools, at the end of which other group members provide feedback for five minutes each about what went well – two positive aspects; even better if – two suggestions for improvement. There will also be time for action planning and establishing networks.  In addition to the above there will also be an input from an Ealing officer to keep you up to date with national and local changes/issues.
