In recent years there has been more of a focus from the ESFA on internal scrutiny within schools and academies.
This has arisen as a result of publicised weaknesses and failures in controls within these organisations.
The Governors/Trustees of a school are required to satisfy themselves that the controls and processes within a school are adequate, implemented and followed.
We are here to help!
We can support you with this by offering a programme of an internal review that can be tailored to suit your school or trusts needs that would include, but is not limited to:
- Financial health checks either termly or annually
- Checks around governance including appropriateness of financial information
- Review of procedures
Our staff have had many years of experience with schools and academies from both a financial and operational point of view and understand the requirements and pressures that are imposed on them.
