Schools Self-Assessment

In order to ensure best practice in the daily management of school activities, the Board's Internal Audit Service has produced a self-assessment questionnaire. The assessment covers the key management issues for which Principals and Governors are responsible. By completing the document Principals and Governors will be:

  • able to reassure themselves of their application of best management practice;
  • informed of those areas most susceptible to the risk of fraud and how to manage this; and
  • able to identify specific areas where current practice needs to be revised or where further assistance and advice would be useful.

  • The questionnaire is available for download in either MS Excel or Word format.

    Schools are encouraged to try the Excel version, which can be completed electronically, as it provides feedback on risks associated with the question area.
