“The roles played by School Business Professional networks make a significant contribution across the school system: they provide support, advice, training and development, as well as opportunities to share best practice. They offer access to a vast bank of professional intelligence and insight. I recommend wholeheartedly that every SBP joins a local network and that every Head and Governing Board supports and encourages their SBP to engage and participate in their local professional community….
