Our spend is less than that as well £207 per pupils would come in very handy! Depends on number of pupils I suppose.

Not bad at all then. Too many building projects for the school for us to get that kind of funding.
The investment planner takes everything into account. If you are talking about a network budget we are given £2500 a year to keep things ticking over. Mind you we spend a lot more than that. The investment planner takes into account your technicians on costs, staff training regarding ICT, how many PC's you have and the renewal policy and a whole load more other things.
Right I'll give the investment planner a go! Should be amusing based on the last 3 years budgets

My budget is £12,000.
With that i have to buy :
all parts required for repairs or replacements
Printer cartridges for all the printers on the curriculum network
The old ict co-ordinators lease agreement..........
Annual subscriptions, i.e. netsupport, broadband
Wall mounted speakers and installation
Anything left is spent on errrr... still waiting for some left over.....
Then every year i have to submit a bid for money from the capital money which all departments of the school bid for. Last year i got nothing, the year before i got £2000 for a server, the year before that i got nothing. So this year i bid for over £30,000!!! I thought why go for little bids and get rejected, go big, and the tactic worked.. got everything i wanted and the boss wanted extra stuff so ended up with 43,500 to spend... well thats pending governors meeting tonight.......
We have this year:
5k Remaining Harnesssing Technologies
And after my presentation at Governors this morning we have the goahead for a £105k lease over 3 years. So this year in total we will have:
£79k for a school of 1400 students (inc Sixth Form)
around £220k - 600 pupils (100 Primary) ... although we are independent
270 pupil primary school, £6000
Excluding toners which are looked after under a contract with a company, we have been given 5k this year. We are a secondary school with around 1000 students.
This will need to be used to buy projector bulbs for 50+ projectors and repairs (lots of vandalism) and replacements for chargers, AC adapters and all other computer and laptop repairs and maintenance.
Anyone else think this is too harsh? We have £1800 quid left till April since replacing bulbs and repairing things that were overdue in April.
It would be nice to know what budget some of you get purely for repairs and maintenance, a general techy type budget that excludes things such as broadband and full new computer suites.
I have about £59k total to spend this year. It's been split down thusly...
Toner - £6000
Repair - £2000
Minor IT Dept. Stuff (think screw drivers, post it notes) - £2000
Software - £300 (two copies of Windows 2008R2 Datacenter)
Printers - £2000
Projectors - £3000
What ever is left after that is room upgrades, laptop for teachers, etc.
including every thing appart from staff, so thats:
subscriptions (SLAs, broardband, etc)
£180 ish we have in our finacial plan
but that does take into account new builds and server replacements and the scope for a managed wireless solution.
