I am aware that Annal provides finance consultancy work for a number of schools but I am more closely aware of the work he does for the  School where I am Chair of Governors.  He works closely with the Business Manager by providing her with the support she needs and by this approach ensures that the school has an excellent finance process.  His work involves him in ensuring that robust financial systems are in place and this work is informed by a very comprehensive set of procedures.  He not only writes them but ensures that the school follows them carefully.  The output of his work that I and the Governors see are the reports that he prepares for the Governing Body Finance Committee.  He provides all the necessary finance figures in a format which is self explanatory and in addition he provides a very clear commentary both on the available budget and the year to date position.  This means that the Governing Body knows exactly where the school is with its finances and therefore we are in an excellent position to make sound financial decisions.  Annal attends all finance meetings.  I have never known a school where the final outturn at the end of the financial year is almost exactly what was predicted at the beginning but such is Annal’s financial expertise in proving Governors with a budget that they can be confident with.  In addition to this work he provides training for Governors on finance matters and produced an honest SFVS return to the LA. Knowing that Annal is working with the finance team in our school gives the Governors and the Headteacher absolute confidence in what is the second main resources for the school after the staff.  I have known Annal for some years now and would not hesitate in recommending his services to any school whether it is primary or secondary
