Budget 2020-21

On the page below you will find the 2020-21 Budget tools provided to aid in your budget planning for next year and beyond.


This is the same process to last year. You will need to open the toolkits (shown below), select your school from the drop down menus (in school number order, however PRUs, Special Schools and Highfield Nursery are shown at the foot of the list) and save a copy to where you would normally save your toolkits etc.

Please note that toolkits will not be made available through AVCO/Anycomms as in previous years.

1. Budget Toolkit: The toolkit will contain your delegated budget information split out by the blocks of funding – Schools and High Needs (where applicable). Within the toolkit there is the Budget Plan tab and also feeding off of this, the 3 year Strategic Plan. The toolkit remains the same as previous years. Further guidance is included in the toolkit. Any federation school toolkits will be sent to those schools separately.

2. Budget Estimate Tool: This is to aid in any further planning / modelling that schools may wish to undertake in supporting the 1 year and strategic planning submissions. Further guidance is included in the tool. Schools can choose to use this; however it is an optional tool. 

3. Budget Commentary: This provides detailed guidance on all aspects of funding and financial planning for 2020-21 and should be used in conjunction with the toolkits.
If you have any technical problems with the toolkit, please contact: sat@suffolk.gov.uk in the first instance.
