Financial control

Schools are funded from public money and are bound by the Local Authority's requirements on financial controls and monitoring. Governing bodies must operate within the Scheme for Financing Schools and the financial controls below.

The Schools Financial Services team will periodically carry out Compliance Visits to every school to check the school is maintaining accurate records and adhering to the financial controls.

All schools also come within the Internal Audit regime determined by Kent County Council and may be subject to a visit as part of the Internal Audit programme. They will also check the school is maintaining accurate records and adhering to the financial controls.
