The following is the envisaged timeline for the phased introduction of submission of annual school accounts to the FSSU:

  • 2018/19 school year: This will be the first year for school accounts to be prepared using the standardised national template. This will be the required format for schools to fulfil obligations under s.18 of the Education Act 1998.
  • End of February 2020: This will be the latest date for school accounts for the 2018/19 school year to be submitted to the FSSU. This is 6 months after end of 2018/19 school year.
  • Annually thereafter: Annual School Accounts to be submitted to the FSSU in the prescribed format by the end of February (6 months after the end of the school year).
