Financial reports and statements
You don't have to produce annual reports.
However, you must complete the Schools Financial Value Standard (SFVS) annually. See our other article on the SFVS requirements.
Your governing board also needs to provide information in the consistent financial reporting (CFR) framework to your local authority (LA). Read more in our article on the CFR.
