Buildings & Finance

The Buildings and Finance Team supports Headteachers and Governors of our Voluntary Aided (VA) Schools in maintaining and developing their buildings, working through their appointed Diocesan School Surveyor.

Salisbury Diocesan Board of Education takes pride in helping our Church Schools provide the best possible teaching and learning environment for all children and young people.

Voluntary Controlled Schools may also seek advice from our experts in partnership with the Local Authority provision.

A number of resources are available for download from the grey 'Buildings & Finance Resources' box on the left.
