About the Schools Finance Service

The Schools Finance Service ensures sound administration of schools and the Local Authority's financial affairs.  By strengthening school management, it makes a contribution to raising educational standards.  We work closely with schools and colleagues within the Local Authority to ensure high quality provision.

The team is able to offer a wide range of services to schools as well as providing statutory services to the Council.  Full details of the services available, including charges, may be viewed via the Traded Services to Schools webpage.
