Add your own deadlines

You'll likely have your own deadlines to meet that are unique to your school.

To find and add these, look at:

  • All of your policies
  • Funding agreements from any grants you receive
  • Your school improvement plan

Ask your governing board and local authority (LA) if they have any deadlines they expect you to meet.

If you're a maintained school, consult your LA's scheme for financing schools too.

If you're an academy, look for deadlines in your:

  • Funding agreement
  • Articles of association
  • Scheme of delegation (if your school is part of a multi-academy trust)
