We are delighted to present our refreshed offer of Services for Schools, academies and other educational settings.

We have an extensive service offer including Administration and Management, Curriculum Development and Support, HR and Finance, ICT and Systems, Health, Safety and Wellbeing, Property and Environment and Pupil Support. 

All of our services are outlined in our Directory, which is published within the Services for Schools area of School Messenger (secure log in required), including how the services can benefit your school or schools. There is a direct contact for each service within the Directory to advise you on that specific service. Alternatively if you have a more general enquiry you can reach the team by using the contact details on this page.

We hope you find the Directory useful. Please continue to share your views with us about what is working well, services that can be improved and services you feel we should be offering.

Cornwall Council’s Services for Schools offer is delivered by staff with a wealth of relevant experience, knowledge and skills. Services are well respected and valued by schools as demonstrated in testimonials throughout the Directory.

We are committed to:

  • Delivering high quality services that your school can depend on;
  • Providing excellent value for money;
  • Supporting you to comply with national/legislative standards where applicable;
  • Offering bespoke and standard packages to meet your school’s needs;
  • Information governance;
  • Clear corporate processes;
  • Established multi professional and multi-agency working;
  • Suitably qualified staff, covered by the necessary DBS checks as required.

We provide both core service level agreements which are purchased for the full academic year and also flexible support services which can be bought on a pay as you go basis when needed.

We value all of our customers and are committed to continual review of our offer to improve our services. We appreciate the challenges that schools face during difficult financial times and our services are designed and priced to help you manage your budgets.

We aim to make purchasing our services as easy as possible. There are two ways to buy our services:
