Office Managers' Meeting 19.05.22
By Sadie Wiles, CFO, OWN Trust
On Thursday 19th May 2022, the Office Managers' meeting took place at Woodston Primary School. The meetings provide a regular opportunity to catch up, support and discuss the latest guidance and deadlines to which we have to adhere.
Those attending included Sophie Lewis (Finance Officer, OWN Trust Central Office), Lynsey Mason (HR Officer, OWN Trust Central Office), Aga Celary (Finance Administrator, Woodston Primary School), Andrea Hatfield (HR Administrator, Woodston Primary School), Sharon Davey (Office Manager, Woodston Primary School), Kate McLaughlin (Office Manager, Orton Wistow Primary School), Samantha Bottomley (Office Manager, Nene Valley Primary School) and Sadie Wiles (CFO, OWN Trust Central Office).
This month the discussion was around the budget setting process and the rising costs that will have a major impact on the school budgets over the next few years. We also discussed updates to the Financial regulations and how to ensure these are adhered to in the schools and the process changes that will affect the school offices. The meeting gave an opportunity for networking and provided a forum to ask questions from the group for support and guidance.
