Let us help with Integrated Curriculum and Financial Planning (ICFP)

What is ICFP?

  • Integrated curriculum and financial planning (ICFP) is not new, and is now widely promoted as an effective tool for planning and designing a curriculum to meet your pupils’ needs within your available funding.
  • When faced with declining budgets this has never been more important.
  • ICFP can been applied to any phase or type of school.
  • It includes measuring and monitoring key metrics and factors associated with delivering your curriculum, including staffing and resource allocation.

Why is ICFP Important?

  • Linking curriculum and financial planning is fundamental to meeting your school’s core objectives, i.e. pupil attainment and financial sustainability.
  • Applying effective ICFP means your school will deliver the best possible curriculum provision for your pupils within budget now and in the future.
  • Effective ICFP helps future proof your school, develops capacity for the unexpected and maximises opportunities.

Who is involved?

  • To be effective, ICFP must involve your senior leaders, including your financial planner and any other staff involved in the design of your curriculum and timetabling.
  • A team approach is necessary; there are many benefits to ensuring all the right people are involved, creating a common understanding of key objectives.
