Welcome to Direct Services to Schools

Welcome to the 2019-20 Direct Services to Schools website. We are really pleased to continue to provide schools with a range of services that support in the provision of high quality learning experiences for children and young people.

We are committed to work alongside schools to make sure that as a local authority, we provide the services you require. This year we are introducing the following 2 new services:
  • Safeguarding Review/Audit toolkit – a service that support schools in developing safeguarding procedures that are effective and fully up-to-date.
  • Communications and Digital Service - offering a range of marketing and communications services

Following on-going consultation with schools, the renewal process has been streamlined even further to allow schools/academies to submit their renewal form and sign off their SLA in one process. Additionally a school/academy can opt for a 1, 2 or 3 year agreement.

To enable us to support you in meeting your financial deadlines, we have also introduced the below key dates:
