Audit - self-assessment tools for schools
The Schools Control Risk Self Assessment provides good practice guidance for schools for identifying controls expected to be in place in respect of financial systems, governance arrangements and other systems and procedures. Although it is not a complete and exhaustive list of controls it highlights key areas that are commonly reviewed as part of routine Internal Audit visits to schools and underlines the risks involved in not having adequate procedures and controls in place.
As part of the Schools Financial Value Standard (SFVS), there is a requirement for schools to demonstrate that there are effective controls in place. This includes the need for schools to regularly review the effectiveness of systems and controls. Completion of the Schools Control Risk Self Assessment would allow schools to review the expected controls set out in this guidance and compare with the actual procedures currently in operation. Schools can then determine the action needed to ensure adequate controls are established.
