Energy Procurement & Display Energy Certificates (DECs)
Enjoy the benefit of centralised bulk purchasing and monitoring of electricity and gas. We can provide the Display Energy Certificate (DEC) that is mandatory for public buildings.
The Energy Management Team is able to provide a full procurement and monitoring service for the purchase of electricity, gas and oil. The Council has centralised energy contracts with preferred suppliers that are tendered under full OJEU regulations.

By having a central energy contract, the council is able to ensure more favourable rates for energy are secured as well as some value added services such as the provision of AMR or Smart Meters, access to web based billing and access to half-hourly data. All billing data is imported and stored within our central database allowing sites and school access via a web browser to view their energy consumption, and run reports to review their cost and consumption.

Public Buildings, including Schools also are required to display a Display Energy Certificate (DEC). By having schools on a central contract means that our data requirements are met, enabling us to have access to all schools energy data to assist in producing the DEC.

Reminder: changes to teacher assessment from the 2018 to 2019 academic year As previously communicated, a number of changes to teacher assessment (TA) arrangements will take effect from the 2018 to 2019 academic year. There will be no requirement for schools to report statutory TA judgements at KS2 in English reading or mathematics, however English reading and mathematics test results will continue to be used in school performance measures. Schools must use the 2018 to 2019 versions of the TA frameworks at KS1 and KS2. The English writing frameworks are unchanged from the versions used this year. Schools must use the pre-key stage standards to make TA judgements at KS1 and KS2 for pupils working below the standard of the tests and above P scale 4. P scales 5 to 8 will no longer be used. For pupils working below the pre-key stage standards, P scales 1 to 4 will continue to be used for the statutory assessment of these pupils in 2018 to 2019. Reminder: complete our teacher assessment survey by 20 July Please complete this short survey about teacher assessment and the standardisation process. The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete and will close on Friday 20 July.
