Guide to the new contract services 2018-19 e-process
Your contract will be sent to the headteacher and chair of governors email week commencing 19th March 2018.
The headteacher and the chair of governors will both get a copy of the contract. A reminder email will be sent to the school business manager (if applicable) to inform them that the contract has been sent.
Preferably the headteacher should sign the contract. Alternatively, if they are unavailable to do this, an authorised signatory for the school, academy or setting is able to sign the contract. If you are signing on behalf of a multi-academy trust, please follow your own internal signing off procedure.
If in doubt, please email email@example.com or call 01438 844788.
Please check in any spam or junk folders your email software may have in the first instance. If you still have not received it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01438 844788.
All the details of each service are online; please click the service title on the contract to take you to the relevant page on our website, alternatively please select from the menu below:

You will have the option to print or save your contract from the document signing programme.
If you would like a breakdown of the ICT contract, please indicate this in comments box; an ICT services breakdown will be sent to the headteacher (unless otherwise requested).
If you are converting to an academy before the 1st April 2018, you will be sent the academies version of your contract. If you are converting after 1st April, you will be sent the maintained version of your contract and then an amended academies version of the contract will be sent once the conversion is confirmed.
We do need the contract signed and returned by the due date. Communications will be sent periodically to the headteacher and chair of governors about the process. Your services will continue to be delivered, however there is a possibility of disruption if the contract is not returned.
If more than one contract is sent back, and there are differences between them, Herts for Learning will contact the headteacher to ensure the right services are delivered. If the contracts are duplications the headteacher will not be contacted.
If you would like details about the PAYU service that your school, academy or setting has invested in, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
'The work to establish HfL and to take it through its first couple of years of operation has been well done and the efforts by the team are much appreciated. There seems to be a genuine commitment to listening to the customer and this is useful for schools but will also ensure that there is a strong future for us all. Thank you for the work to date – much appreciated.'
'We are fortunate to have Herts for Learning – so many counties have very little. The support from HIPs, the teaching and learning advisors and the other support systems is particularly useful. Initiatives to provide assessment materials are also something Herts for Learning does well.'
