Schools Financial Value Standard (SFVS)

The SFVS is a self-assessment that should be undertaken by schools to ensure the effective financial management of their resources.

It is a statutory requirement that all maintained schools complete and submit the SFVS to the local authority (LA) on an annual basis. However, the SFVS will not be externally assessed; the LA will use the school's returns to inform their programme of financial assessment and audit.

All Kent schools must complete and submit the SFVS to the LA by 31 March each year. Please email to and retain the signed hard copy in school.
