Changes to the internal courier service update and consultation

08 Sep 2017

The internal courier service is to change – it may cease, may be reduced in frequency or may become chargeable to schools .

A final consultation survey has been sent to school business managers, office managers and administrators to clarify the impact a change may have on schools and council teams and whether the service should continue.


18 September at 3.30pm - 65% of schools have responded

Headteachers please remind your staff to let us have your feedback on the school courier service survey by 5pm, Monday 18 September 2017.

If the service continues the total yearly cost may be shared equally between participating schools:

  • The cost to a school for the academic year may be £47 a term (depending on the number of schools participating)
  • Collection and pick up may reduce from weekly to fortnightly, every other Wednesday morning.

Under the new arrangements the first chargeable collection would take place on 1 November 2017.

If your school does not complete and submit the survey, it will be assumed you no longer require the service.

If you have any questions contact Daniel Ossei.
