The Governors are responsible for the running of the school and the management of its finances.
The school is a maintained school meaning that we operate under a delegated budget from the Local Authority and are responsible to them for its use.
All school finances will be used with best value principles to secure and sustain the highest possible achievement for all children.
Outstanding achievement will be continually secured
- in a modern learning environment
- using a wide range of inspirational resources
- by maintaining a highly professional and well-qualified team
The formula for determining the general budget allocated to a school is based on a wide variety of factors and additional monies are also allocated for specific areas of consideration, such as SEN or in recognition of the demographics of the intake. The Pupil Premium is a good example.
The school receives an annual allocation of funding for each child entitled to receive Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years, and children who are looked after (LAC) and children of service families.
The Governors and Staff decide what is the best way to spend that funding in order to achieve the maximum benefit for all vulnerable children at Holland Junior.
If your child does not take free school meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please see the office to register them, even if you do not wish them to have the meals. This would mean the school could claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help them and other eligible pupils.
