Entrust Launch BACS Bureau Service
08 Nov
Entrust are pleased to launch a new Approved BACS Bureau service. The service will support schools and academies nationally providing them with secure and reliable BACS processing. Using a Bacs Bureau ensures numerous benefits which can include financial savings and access to expert support and advice. Entrust has provided finance support to educational establishments since 2013 supporting Governors, Headteachers, Finance Directors, School Business Managers and Finance staff in all financial aspects from day-to-day operation up to major strategic change projects. Michelle Williams, Head of Education Finance at Entrust, said “Our new service will help schools streamline their banking and keep their cash flowing. We have over 100 customers already signed up to the new service and look forward to supporting many more.” Rob Boyles, Finance Director at Entrust, added “We are proud to help schools and academies operate efficiently and effectively whilst remaining financially secure and stable. By becoming an approved Bureau, we hope to help reduce or remove the challenges some schools and academies face when processing their BACS payments in-house.” To find out more about the new service, email enquiries@entrust-ed.co.uk.

Primary History Network Meeting
This is an opportunity to meet with fellow historians as we explore the latest Ofsted framework and understand what it means for learning and progress to be ‘outstanding’ in history. It is also a forum for you to share your ideas, proven techniques and models of excellent practice. These network meetings are facilitated by Aaron Wilkes. Aaron has 20 years’ experience working in schools as a teacher, department and faculty leader. He has also taken on pastoral and behaviour management positions within school and, as a consequence of these varied roles, has led teams of teachers (trainee teachers, NQTs and experienced full and part-time teachers) through a range of whole-school initiatives. A veteran of nine Ofsted inspections, a large number of practices and procedures used within his departments have been initiated across the whole-school and he has run workshops on these in both local schools and other academy trusts and LAs. In addition to the classroom, Aaron has worked widely in publishing. He is the author of Oxford University Press’s KS3 History textbook series/online package (KS3 History by Aaron Wilkes), which is currently one of the best-selling KS3 textbook series in Britain. He is also the Series Editor/Co-author of OUP/AQA’s KS4 History textbooks which matches the new GCSE specification. He has written a number of teaching articles (for the BBC, Oxford University Press and SecEd Magazine, for example), has run workshops and lectured at a number of teaching/academic conferences and has recently worked on a series of ten short animated films for BBC Learning.
