WF School Business Managers Network

The WF School Business Managers Network meets every six weeks and provides free guidance and training to school business professionals in maintained schools.

School Business Managers (SBMs) are a key member of a school's senior leadership team. Responsibilities of a School Business Manager often include finance, human resources, infrastructure, procurement and marketing.

In response to requests from local School Business Managers, the WF SBM Network was created to compliment the local SBM networks. It aims to provide a forum through which school business professionals in maintained schools can be provided with: 

  • support and guidance; 
  • opportunities to share and discuss collective concerns or issues; and 
  • opportunities to share best practice

The Network meets every six weeks - dates are included on the key dates page. Agendas are created in partnership with SBMs and generally include:

  • updates and guidance from Council Services;
  • training / development workshops; and
  • 'clinics'. 

All SBMs from maintained schools are actively encouraged to attend or send an appropriate member of their business/administrative team. For further information, please contact the Education Business Effectiveness Service
