School Finance & Accountancy Team Finance Packages 2018-19

From the 1st May last year the teams supporting schools finance have been re-organised with a new team being formed to offer a schools a dedicated finance support team. We have an experienced team who can support schools in all areas of schools finance. (A different team support schools requiring interim bursars).

This team falls under the Finance Director for Education, as part of our commitment to provide effective support and good value for schools, recognising the financial pressures schools are under, we overhauled this traded package.

The Team     

The team is made up of the following members:

Team Manager                                Jonathan Carter

Schools Support Officers              Julie Crook, Elaine Perry, Alison Philp

The Packages

For the coming academic year we are continuing to offer a package based on credits, where you have the option to use these in a totally flexible way.  The more credits you need the better value for money you will get.

Packages run from September to August and if you choose a package before the start of the year, we will automatically upgrade you to the best value package / combination depending on how many credits you have used at the year-end (August 2019). You don’t have to worry about which combination is the best value; you will always get the best value for the credits you have used. All we ask is that you commit to a package before the start of the year so we can plan our resources.

We therefore recommend that schools choose the Bronze package, unless you do not want a package, but budget according to the expected use of services.  Any school choosing not to buy a package before the start of the year; will be charged at the standard undiscounted rate for any credits used. We will even chase any school we haven’t heard from in early September just in case your response got lost!

Should a school not wish to purchase a package, services are charged at £51.50 per 50 credits (minimum to cover administration costs as well as support). This may be the most appropriate option for schools rarely needing support but needing the odd telephone call or wanting to attend a single event. The higher unit costs reflects the relatively high cost of administration for the services provided.

To be as fair as possible to schools, telephone calls will incur a minimum of a 10 credit charge, but calls will be rounded to the nearest 10 mins after that, e.g. 14 minutes would cost 10 credits, 18 minutes would cost 20 credits. If you get cut off or have to break the call for the usual school office interruption(!) and have to call us back to complete the conversation that day, we will even add the time to the previous call so you don’t get charged the minimum time more than once for the same conversation!

Our computer based training packages allow for additional delegates (sharing the same computer/desk) to attend at a significant discount. Our full day courses include lunch and half and full day courses also include refreshments.

Our school visit work is for a minimum of two hours, to cover travel time costs, but longer visits are charged at a lower rate per hour after that.

We hope this package provides the best value for schools.
