Schools’ Financial Figures now Available

coinsEver wondered how much your school costs to run? Harrow Council have published the 2011/12 Outrun Statement showing exactly how much money was spent across the borough, split between over a hundred different account codes, and broken down by school: an armchair auditor’s dream.

Interested statisticians might also like to cross reference this with schools’ KS4 performance data, which is available from the Department of Education’s website. Is their any correlation between the amount of money spent per pupil and good results? Does the amount of money spent on school maintenance relate to the money spent on teaching staff to show if a well maintained building attracts better teachers?

So much data and so little time.
