School Assessment Questionnaire
In order to ensure best practice in the daily management of school activities, the boards 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.
