Financial Benchmarking


  • DFE financial information and benchmarking can be found here
  • No staff at Furzedown reach the £100,000 disclosure salary 


Schools are now able to compare income and expenditure with similar establishments in England.

There are 4 main cost areas:

  • Staff
  • Premises (for example, building maintenance)
  • Occupation (the cost of occupying the school building, for example, energy and water)
  • Supplies and services (for example, stationery, books and examination fees)

Benchmarking helps the school:

  • look at spend in these areas overall, as well as sub-categories of spend
  • compare our spend with other similar schools (or academy trusts)
  • inform our school development process
