The schools financial benchmarking service provided by the Department for Education (DfE) allows you to identify schools that are similar to your own and compare your:

  • Spending
  • Performance
  • Staffing structures

Benefits of Benchmarking

  • Look at spending in these areas overall, as well as sub-categories of spending
  • Compare your school’s spending with other similar schools
  • Inform your school development process

Making changes

Benchmarking helps you to connect with other schools to discuss challenges and successes.

This can help you to consider whether:

  • Your resource allocations are working
  • You can improve outcomes by making changes

Limitations of benchmarking

Benchmarking is only a guide. You should think about other things you know about your school when assessing.
