Services for Schools and Academies


Gateshead Council offers a wide range of services on a traded (buy-back) basis to support schools and academies in meeting a range of educational and statutory duties.

Our services are delivered by teams with years of experience of working with schools and academies to support the education, safeguarding and enhancing the well being of children and young people. Services available include HR, Payroll and Personnel Support, Financial Support, Educational and School Improvement Advice, Behaviour Improvement Support, Educational Psychology, Governor Support, Gateshead Music Service, School Sport, Trips and Leisure services, ICT solutions, Facilities Management and Cyclical Maintenance, School Meals, Building Cleaning and Caretaking Support, Energy Management, Security and Grounds Maintenance services. We continually review our services to ensure they are high quality and value for money and we aim to deliver the best customer service possible.     

We produce a prospectus for schools and academies every year which describes in detail the traded services we offer to schools and academies in Gateshead. Our 2015-16 prospectus was published in November 2014 and schools and academies in Gateshead have been notified by email about how they can access it via the MyService portal. Schools and Academies should order services they wish to buy back from the Council no later than 27th February 2015, as this allows us enough time effectively arrange and deliver services during 2015-16.

Some of our services can also be purchased by schools and academies from outside of Gateshead. If you are interested in purchasing our services, you can request a copy of our prospectus, stating the name of the school/academy by emailing:
