It’s common for Academy Schools, especially newly converted schools, to put off dealing with some or all of their financial commitments. It could be that there is no-one in the school that has the required skills and experience to deal with the accounting requirements, so everything is postponed until a financial deadline is imminent.
How can AJS Education Services help?
We’re used to coming into schools and helping them to pull together all the information that’s needed to enable them to hit the relevant deadlines. Once that’s done, we’ll help that school to put in place the right systems and processes so that the next deadline is much less stressful. We can do the same for your school.
Training Your Team
Once you have the right systems in place, you may want to invest in training your team. We can help with this, making sure that your business manager, governors and other key members of staff understand their responsibilities as part of an Academy School.
