Financial and Legal Support
Each school has its own finance officer to process orders, invoices and the general day to day financial procedures. The Academy Business Manager oversees the work of the finance officer and the monitoring is undertaken by the Academy bursar. This allows for the Heads of School and senior leaders to concentrate more deeply on standards. Apart from the day to day financial requirements the Whinless Down Academy Trust will manage your schools financial procedures such as financial monitoring, reporting to governors, submissions to ESFA and liaison with auditors.
To ensure the very best legal advice, we will engage the services of an experienced legal firm to ensure you receive the very best legal advice. We will also engage the services of our personnel provider to offer support and liaise with trade unions on behalf of member academies.
