it might be old school thinking but i've always known the sump to be mechanical filtration first, then natural(Refugium) followed lastly by chemical.
so that all looks good to me

Will still work. You can drop the last baffle as well and increase the refugium by that 20 or 30 mm. Sump is only 900mm so every bit make a difference.

Also test fit your skimmer BEFORE you build the sump. You must be able to fit the skimmer and be able to take it out, while the sump is inside the cabinet.
