Oracle Accounts Payable

Cheque Payments

Author: Martin Quinn

We have recently been experiencing issue with raising invoices and payments on Oracle Accounts Payable when maintained Walsall schools have provided services to other maintained Walsall schools. This is due to the cheque name being made payable to ‘XXXX school’ rather than ‘Walsall Council’ which means we cannot process or bank the cheque.


Schools should not be doing this, they should be processed as journals, however this is causing some confusion.

DfE equipment provided via local authority

Author: nick perks

The management platforms provided by the DfE for equipment provided last year will be withdrawn on the following dates:

iPads – 08 July 2021

Routers – 16 July 2021 (data ends 31 July 2021)

Laptops/Tablets – 30 September 2021

Withdrawal of the management platforms means that the antivirus and filtering software on the devices will no longer be updated; therefore you should now make arrangements to reconfigure this equipment in order to be able to continue to use it safely.

Please note that equipment allocated to Looked After Children remains the property of the Local Authority’s Virtual School and should not be reformatted nor removed from the child it was initially allocated to; the local authority will make alternative arrangements for this equipment via the relevant case worker.
