VAT Advice, Guidance and Training
VAT is a complex area which presents a serious for all types of businesses. The tax regime has become more complex over recent years and with it the potential for harsher penalties.
This service provides access to advice, guidance and training with regard to VAT legislation affecting schools. We can support you with all aspects of VAT and offer you the peace of mind that you are upto date with your VAT affairs.
Energy Supply and Management Service
For many years, Warrington schools have had access to our energy procurement and management service, ensuring a consistent, uninterrupted and best value supply of energy to all buildings.
With the formation of new academy schools, we are now offering the opportunity to continue access to this specialist service at exceptionally competitive rates.
Energy prices vary by supplier, but in all cases, better tariffs are available to the largest customers. Government figures show that electricity prices rose between 24 and 32 per cent last year for most non-domestic customers, whereas for the largest purchasers of energy the rises were only 14 per cent.
Energy costs for schools can be considerable, with Warrington high schools paying on average over £100 per pupil per year. As a significant revenue cost that is rising year on year, it will be of utmost importance to academy schools to keep this cost as low as possible.
Our energy management service will provide access to our group procured energy tariffs, managing supplies, metering and validation of bills on behalf of the academy. The aim of our proposed service is to provide a seamless transition for the academy from current provision to a new tailored service.
Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Support Service
Maintained schools have a statutory requirement to undertake the induction of newly qualified teachers under an appropriate body in line with the DfE guidance.
It is expected that academies, free schools and other establishments employing NQTs will employ similar good practise and ensure all NQTs complete their training in line with the statutory requirements.
The council will act as the appropriate body to monitor and support both the NQT and the mentor to maximise the benefit of the induction period and to provide guidance which, if followed will ensure that the induction period is completed successfully
