Reporting on costs
Go to Costs > Intervention Costs from the left-hand menu.
This page contains information relating to the Intervention costs to date and the projected costs for the end of the academic year.
- Costs to date are a cumulative report of the costs incurred by the intervention until the current date.
- Projected costs are the costs incurred to the current date, plus any costs that will be incurred until the intervention’s End Date.
Note: the costs calculations are based on the total number of hours the intervention is scheduled to run for and the students currently enrolled in the intervention. They do not take into account any unscheduled interventions and are accurate at the moment the screen is opened. Any additional scheduled sessions, additional staff members or changes student enrolment will result in adjusted calculations.
These can be viewed by going to Interventions > Costs > Funding Sources.
Funding sources are set at a whole school level and require the user role Finance: Administer permission.
Intervention funding sources allow you to manage the list of funding sources available for you to allocate intervention costs against. Funding sources, such as Pupil Premium, allow you to record and track how you are spending the pupil premium grant for individual students and report this back to your local authority.
Arbor manages a default list of funding sources. Through this section, you can add new funding sources to meet the needs of your school and also remove unnecessary ones.
To add a funding source, click +Add.
Set a name for your funding source and click Create.
To delete a funding source, click on a funding source which is editable, indicated by the side-way arrow.
Select Delete to remove the funding source. Please note that this action is irreversible and cannot be recovered.
