Integrated Curriculum Financial Planning (ICFP)
ICFP Annex K and MDIF
Since August 2018, PAG have worked with a wide range of clients all over England, on carrying out ICFP’s. This has included Single-Academy Trusts, all primary Multi-Academy Trusts, all secondary Multi-Academy Trusts and cross-phase Trusts. For some of our clients, we have completed the ICFP in order to meet the requirements of the Annex K and to help to release their MDIF grant. For other clients, the ICFP has been conducted to help design an affordable, sustainable approach to their curriculum and to drive effective school resource management. In addition, this has been part of the process of sponsoring or converting a new school into our clients’ Trusts.
Data Driven approach
ICFP stands for ‘integrated curriculum and financial planning’. It is a data driven approach which enables schools to plan and organise the deployment of their teachers and strategically plan looking several years ahead. In this process, Premier Advisory Group will help you to compile the relevant data and documents and we will produce an ICFP report through the analysis of the data to help your school effectively use its resources.
Whilst our clients have had different strategic objectives and varying reasons for want to complete an integrated curriculum and financial planning evaluation, this has proved to be an extremely useful process.
If you would like to know any more information about what the service actually is, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We will provide a detailed, personalised report and above all, is designed to be live documents which help you to improve your financial efficiency to benefit your pupils. The process will give you the knowledge you need to implement a sustainable model which boots outcomes for your pupils and will also give your trustees and governors visibility and confidence about the value for money you provide.

PAG supported the Swanland Education Trust in 2018 by conducting ICFP analysis on the schools in our Trust and enabling our MDIF grant to be released. A range of measures were taken into account and this opened discussion on how to use even more resources effectively and efficiently in the SET schools. The findings from the ICFP analysis helped SET in collaborative decision making, the development of the Trust and forward planning. At all stages of the process, the PAG team were supportive and allowed the pace of work to be bespoke to our situation. This resulted in a stress free process from start to finish.”

"In 2019, PAG supported the Infinity Academies Trust in conducting an ICFP review. The team was diligent in their analysis and the report they provided enabled the trust to look at structuring and planning against measures. PAG completed the work efficiently and effectively, which allowed us to access our MDIF bid."
