OWN Trust Office Managers' Meeting
By Sadie Wiles, OWN Trust Chief Finance Officer
On Tuesday 9th November 2021, Sadie Wiles (OWN Trust Chief Finance Officer) and Collette Hunter (OWN Trust Business Manager) met with the Office Managers from the OWN Trust schools: Kate McLaughlin (Orton Wistow Primary School), Samantha Bottomley (Nene Valley Primary School) and Sharon Davey (Woodston Primary School.) The aim of the meeting, which takes place monthly, was to provide a regular update for the Office Managers.
We discussed the feedback from the external audit that took place during October. Again, it was another good audit with a few minor items that need addressing with regard to processes. The OWN Trust provided an update on upcoming requirements and deadlines. The meeting ended with a general question and answer session to ensure the Office Managers were up-to-date and confident with the requirements.
The Office Managers Meeting is a really important regular event that enables us to keep in touch with each other and ensure we are all working in the same way and on the common goals of the OWN Trust.
The next Office Managers meeting will take place on Thursday 13th January 2022.
