Academy Advisor – Summer 2020

Welcome to our regular newsletter for Academies and Free Schools.

To say it has been a challenging time for schools, is probably an understatement. Hot on the heels of having to fund a 7%+ increase in Teachers pension employers’ contributions, schools are now having to contend with Covid-19. On the whole, we have seen that schools have acted swiftly and are thinking creatively to manage the added logistical and financial stresses.

As we head towards the end of the summer term, plans for the autumn term are still far from clear but implementing protective measures and managing staff and pupil concerns are likely to be top of the agenda.

  • Academies Financial Handbook
