Our Services




Acorn Services

We have two types of services:

  • Centralised -  which means all schools have to use this service and this is funded from the top slice.  These services are Finance and HR

  • Shared  - schools choose to join these services and pay for the service according to their situation and need.  These services are IT, Facilities and Catering.


When a school joins Acorn, the Headteacher attends an Executive Business meeting to meet all key personnel.  Arrangements are then made for Acorn staff to meet relevant staff in the joining school.


The support and process followed to ensure a smooth transition from one service to another is detailed under each service.
