'Business' Working Party
Our School Business and Administration Working Group met today at Newburn Manor. Lee Comstock of Throckley leads this very important group who are responsible for helping OWL schools utilise funding streams effectively. They are currently exploring how this will be achieved and how they are to work together in the coming months. They are already swapping ideas and aiming to achieve better prices from contractors and service providers through the power of bulk purchase. Items on the agenda this week included: Universal Free Meals; waste and recycling; catering services; procurement training; online payments; supply teaching agencies and attendance. All vital areas that help schools run smoothly.
