A good practice library of policies, templates and guidance notes for academies
This area started life in 2013 as a shared initiative between ISBL and the Education Funding and Skills Agency (ESFA) to share templates, policy documents and guidance notes of a financial management nature with the aim of promoting consistency and compliance with the financial regulatory framework.
Following the DfE move to house all material on Gov.uk from 2019, this site will be solely developed and maintained by ISBL in partnership with its Associate Experts Panel.
The aim of the library is to develop and share good practice around the academy sector, and to provide practical assistance to those academies who may be in need of support, eg: free schools and newly converted academies.
