SkillsLogic delivers new online Curriculum Led Financial Planning Tool

Bespoke Software

SkillsLogic has developed a bespoke financial planning system for The Skills Network and their partner Outwood Grange Academies Trust. The brand-new online Curriculum Led Financial Planning Tool (CLFP) will be a collection of tools, templates and methodologies, designed to help secondary schools and Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) plan their finances and manage their staffing more strategically and effectively.

The Curriculum Led Financial Planning Tool will meet the requirements set out by the Department for Education (DfE) in relation to Integrated Curriculum Financial Planning (ICFP) and is developed with this in mind. Here at SkillsLogic, we know that attempting to constantly achieve a strategic approach to managing your school’s finances, or even plan your staffing and recruitment can be challenging. With this tool we are hoping to make this process much easier.

The CLFP will ensure that you have a sustainable staffing structure and a robust curriculum that creates overall improvements and enhances your pupils’ experiences. Benefits include:

  • Benchmarking finances - Benchmark spending and staffing in comparison across schools in trust, to give you new insights and help you to make informed choices on where to spend and where to save in your school
  • Detailed workforce planning - Use tools that enable you to deploy staff efficiently, target your recruitment and ultimately plan your workforce to manage to achieve your targeted teaching group and contact ratios
  • Curriculum and subject modelling - Learn how to accurately model curriculum and subjects in greater detail
  • Quick health check - Simply enter a number of variables to gain an insightful analysis of your Curriculum Bonus and Contact Ratio, benchmarked against recognised standards – conducting important checks to see if your school is doing a sound job of planning and managing resources
  • Managing your school group - A ‘Group Overview’ function, well suited for MATs, gives you access to a ‘top-down’ view of all of your school’s staffing and financial data.

CLFP customer and Multi Academy Trust - Advanced Learning Partnership said:

As a Trust, before the implementation of CLFP, curriculum information was supplied in various formats from our schools. A simple solution was required which combined the curriculum and financial data for each school, as well as easy access to this information at Trust level. CLFP allows the Trust to access information quickly. It has improved the ability to compare our schools against curriculum and financial KPIs and against the other schools in the Trust. This leads to effective discussions and planning with schools throughout the year, regarding curriculum and financial efficiency.
