Internal Audit

Internal Audit

Internal audit for maintained schools is essential. All maintained schools are required to have a professional audit of their School Budget Share account every three or five years.

The requirement for internal audit for academy schools is based on providing an on-going independent oversight of, and assurance concerning, the academy’s financial affairs. It is recommended as best practice for there to be periodical audit checks of financial controls, systems, transactions and risks.

At Nottinghamshire Internal Audit Services, we have a track record of providing schools with a professional internal audit service, which includes advising on financial irregularities and providing financial control advice. We are confident we can fully meet your service needs.
