Our in-depth knowledge of the education sector, gained by helping schools and academies thrive under increasing financial pressures, allows us to identify the challenges you face and deliver the strategic consultancy and operational support to overcome them. Our services include:

From strategic financial planning to accounting and governance, our team of experts work with you to ensure you’re compliant and accountable – and that all your delegated funds are used efficiently. 

Converting to an academy brings greater financial freedom with increased responsibilities. If you’re thinking of becoming an academy, setting up a MAT, or expanding an established MAT, we’ll help you understand the practical implications of conversion and identify the steps to make it a seamless transition. 

SAAF consultants are specialists in finance training for Headteachers, Governors, and Finance Staff. We can provide training for all education finance software and are also accredited PS Financials Training and Support Partners.

Our modern, robust system encompasses deductions, statutory pay calculations, pension administration and prompt salary payment, giving you a comprehensive payroll solution designed for the education sector.

Our internal audits for academies, multi-academy trusts, and free schools, include an on-site visit from one of our finance consultants to review your processes and systems. They will then produce a written report with their findings. Our standard internal audit will look at areas such as Month End Reconciliation, Payroll, Employee Expenses, Purchases, Capital Contracts, Income etc. However, we are able to tailor the audit to monitor any areas that you so wish.

Look after your equipment and fixed assets efficiently with our low cost, paper-free solution, including tagging, auditing and tracking of your school’s moveable property as well as enhanced monitoring of your safety procedures.
