Commercial Terms
By purchasing our services, you are entering into a contractual agreement
with Cornwall Council. For further information, you can view our Terms and
Conditions on page 124 or download it via our online Services4Schools
webpage.

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

Option 1: Online via the SfS web portal
The Services for Schools web portal allows schools to purchase many of the
services within this directory. Services which can be bought through the web
portal are identified in this directory.
Logging in
Visit www.cornwall.gov.uk/sfs and enter your login details. Your username is
always your email address. If you have forgotten your password, this can be
reset by using the Forgotten your Password facility or by contacting the
Services for Schools Support Team at services4schools@cornwall.gov.uk.
Viewing Services
Once logged in, you can view the various providers on the left-hand side of
the screen – these can be viewed by Category (default) or by Name. Click on
the name of the provider to view what is being offered by that provider to
your school. Core packages (normally those which cover your school for the
full academic year) are highlighted in GREEN, whilst those services
highlighted in BLUE are Flexible Support items (instant ‘pay as you go’-type
purchases that can be made throughout the school year). Click on the service
to view an explanation of what is being offered.
Users
All schools have three registered users:
Administrator – This would normally be the School Secretary or Business
Manager. Administrators can select services but do not have the permissions
to approve submissions. Please note that all users can purchase Flexible
Support items without requiring approval – these are instant ‘pay as you go’-
type purchases that can be made throughout the school year.
Headteacher – The Headteacher can select services, as well as approve
submissions. Approval can be given and then passed to the nominated
Governor for approval, or the Headteacher can approve the submission
themselves on behalf of the Governor.

                                                                                  4

Information Classification: CONTROLLED

Governor - This would normally be the Chair of Governors, or another
Governor who has the authority to approve submissions on behalf of the
Governing Body.
Once you are logged-in, you can update the user details for your school by
selecting User Maintenance in the menu at the bottom-left corner of the
screen.

Option 2: Contacting Services Directly
For services that are not available via the SfS web portal and for those where
you want to negotiate a bespoke package, contact the service direct using the
contact information provided in this directory.

What are the implications of not buying this service?

Without this service schools will be responsible for meeting all
statutory obligations (e.g. individual right to representation
and legal obligation to consult on redundancies and staff
changes) from their own budget. Schools will be taking on
responsibility for agreeing, co-ordinating and paying for release
time and paid time off for duties and training of their own
school-based reps.
