With the end of the financial year fast approaching, don't panic-spend or lose what classroom budget you have left! Here are five wise ways to spend any remaining budget you have before the financial yearend.

1. Stock up on the essentials

Why not use your spare school budget to stock up on the essential items you regularly use? These might be things like pens, paper and art supplies. Perhaps you’re down to your last pack of sticky notes or could take the opportunity to stock up on some more glue sticks?

2. Furnish your surroundings

New furnishings can often be seen as an unaffordable luxury, but if you do have a leftover budget, it’s a smart option. New, quality furniture can be an investment that will last for years. It’s a chance to freshen up your surroundings and improve comfort, leading to improvements in productivity and morale. It also creates a great impression with any visitors!

3. Invest in technology

As we all know, technology is an increasingly important part of our lives and the curriculum. It is always changing and improving, so it can be hard to keep up or have all the IT products you’d like. Which is why if you’ve money to spare, it could be the perfect chance to upgrade your IT solutions.

4. Get ready for spring and summer

The temperatures are getting higher, the days lighter for longer, and before we know it, spring and summer will be here! Why not get ahead of the game and put your spare teacher budget towards some new sports equipment or outdoor resources?

5. Make the most of YPO’s own brand range
