Services and Agreements
LSP provides a range of services centrally to deliver the best possible value for money to our schools. As well as those services provided from within the Core Services Charge (‘Core Services’), other goods and services are procured centrally in order to maximise the potential economies of scale, whilst being charged out to schools separately. LSP also recognises that the needs of each school can vary, so a range of optional services are also offered, again charged separately.
Please see guidance below on the services and agreements the Trust provides for all schools. Unless otherwise specified, these services are funded from your Core Services Charge:

Safeguarding system - CPOMS
Your set up details & instructions for this software can be found here.
CPOMS is an evidence based system that has been developed specifically for use by schools and Academies to improve their processes for managing child protection, safeguarding, inclusion, SEN, student welfare and similar important situations where sensitivity and security are paramount.
Replacing traditional paper based or relatively primitive IT systems that often lack integration and can take up a considerable amount of staff time, CPOMS enables easy and effective communications within the school and with external agencies. CPOMS places everything related to an individual, group of individuals, case(s) etc in one easy to access location that is highly secure and resilient.
The system is extremely easy to use. Integration with leading MIS systems prevents the need to enter data twice; CPOMS adds complementary value to existing MIS systems by delivering specialist functionality together with effective management information, trend analysis and useful statistics.
The secure document store and student information vault enables related documentation to be scanned or electronic data to be attached to records so that all information is readily collated and accessible.
