I’ve been a School Business Manager (SBM) in the UK Secondary Sector for 16 years and I’m also Finance Director of our growing Multi Academy Trust.
There is so much change happening in Education, both nationally and in my own MAT, that I’ve found it helps my own wellbeing to record it in a blog. My hope is that it helps others navigate what can be a challenging, varied and intense role with a positive attitude and supportive mindset.
I’ve made so many new friends here and I love the continued growth of sharing and collaboration in schools. Please do get involved so that we can grow our support and use our experiences to help other SBMs around the country (and the world), though it isn’t always about work!
I hope you enjoy my website. Any tips, improvement suggestions and observations are most welcome, as are questions about any aspect of the role of an SBM. Leave me a comment, I’m happy to help.
I’m constantly curious and I’m still learning everyday.
