    Not sure how we'll manage that when our DFC is being cut entirely.

    My budget for next year will be the same as this years and last years ZERO! The only budget I have is purely for consumables which is £2,500 to cover 7 ICT suites and cross curricular printing.....

    I think alot of work could be done on how the budget is allocated to ICT in schools - e.g. in some schools I've worked out of teachers desktops/notebooks came out of department bugets along with IWBs and the like. However in others its been all central from the IT budget.
    Both concepts have their perks but I think its a real thing to think over some more.

    There is so much pointless wastage in schools, savings could be made in many areas. Of the top of my head - paper, toner, power usage. Same in any business as well.

    Makes jobs more fun, doing more with less!

    Open source anyone?
