You should have an asset management plan 

Maintained schools must complete the Schools Financial Value Standards (SFVS) assessment form once a year. 

Question 24 asks: 'Does the school maintain its premises and other assets to an adequate standard and make best use of capital monies for this purpose?'

The corresponding SFVS checklist guidance explains that all schools should have an asset management plan, and should develop a process to help them prioritise work appropriately.
