School courier service commitment survey

11 Oct 2017

Update 17 October: the commitment survey is now closed

The courier service will stop for those schools that haven't responded to the survey or have opted out of the service.

Headteachers are asked to respond by 5pm on Monday, 16 October.

As advised, from November, the courier service will become chargeable.

To continue to use this service's weekly drop off and collection, schools are asked to commit to pay a yearly cost of £141 - £266, depending on how many schools buy back the service.

A final decision survey has been sent to headteachers by email on Wednesday, 11 October.

In September a final consultation survey was 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.

45 schools expressed their interest to maintain this service on a weekly basis.

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 (details below).
