School Finance

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

  • Spending
  • Performance
  • Staffing structures

The tool enables schools to select multiple schools or trusts and add them to a “benchmark basket”. Clicking “View benchmark charts” allows schools to view comparisons of these other schools across 4 main areas. 


Within these areas there are charts covering more specific aspects. For example, for expenditure you can see charts focusing on expenditure in areas such as:

  • Staff
  • Premises
  • Supplies and services

The data currently on the financial benchmarking service is based on 2018-19 data. 


Wellstead Primary School does not have any member of staff that is paid in excess of £100,000
