    I have done a lot of manual input to my main senario, so as a test before update, I locked a copy of a different senario. When locked it can’t be amended. I then copied the locked senario to the working senarios, however, this working file is now named copy of copy of … As this will be the main working senario, can I rename it so that it doesn’t show as a copy?

      Hi Carol,

      Yes, you can rename the scenario by selecting Edit in the dropdown box to the far right of the scenario on the Manage Budgets page.

    Thanks for this. When will this information be updated into the budget planning tool?

      Hi Kelly,

      Within the next couple of days HCSS will be updating FPS with the 2016 School Budget Share for each school.
      Important note: We recommend that you save a copy of your plans you are currently working on and lock it so that no changes can be made to it as the update will effectively cancel out any manual work that the school has done on the pupil numbers and budget share.
      With this in mind HCSS have made the update optional for schools to accept. We therefore advise single budget federations that they should not accept the update as they have manually populated their budget share data and if they accept the update it will set their budget share data back to zero.
      All other schools should accept the update because it will ensure that their budget share matches their final funding statement.
      All Maintained schools must publish their FPS 3 year budget plan by 1st May 2016 .The Governing Body must approve the final budget prior to publication.
