These figures will be used for the DfE Benchmarking data, so if there are any material changes to be made, please let us know when you return the document to sat@suffolk.gov.uk

The CFR framework aims to provide a standard framework for schools to collect information about their income and expenditure to support benchmarking and enable simple reports to be produced for governors and local authorities. The DfE sets the definitions for each CFR code.

CFR benchmarking provides schools with detailed data and allows greater opportunities to compare and contrast financial decisions in relation to similar schools. It also provides schools with the opportunity to analyse specific areas of finance over time to help evaluate the direct impact on pupils’ learning. CFR data reduces the number of demands made on schools to provide data and information. Click for CFR Benchmarking – Please note that you will be requested for log in details.
