EsLA 2020-21

Service Level Agreement

EsLA is the annual Education Services Level Agreement between our family of schools and the Guildford Diocesan Board of Education.

The EsLA agreement is for a period of one year starting on 1st April and will continue for successive periods of one year, with all buyback entitlements to be used within the following academic year, unless terminated on an anniversary by either party on the giving of two months’ notice.

Each Spring we send an automatic reminder to member schools for renewal for the next academic year. We offer the option to continue the subscription level or change and upgrade online using our schools portal https://gdbeonline.org

Our three levels of membership are:

  • EsLA CORE - entry level
  • EsLA Extend
  • EsLA Enhance

EsLA Extend and Enhance levels increase entitlements, benefits and discounts.

  • Group EsLA CORE

Our Group EsLA CORE is one service level agreement designed exclusively to support executive teams and Multi-Academy Trusts. Extend or Enhance Levels can be procured, as appropriated, to meet further requirements. These can be requested by an executive team or Trust after the Group EsLA CORE subscription is agreed for all schools or academies within the group.

Our Directors and Lead officers work collaboratively with executive teams and Trusts, in partnership with their headteachers, to deliver Diocesan suites of support and training in a way that is most beneficial in terms of cost, management of resources and time, across the group.

Our approach is to co-ordinate services for the Group through one central point, usually the Trust or executive team.

Please contact a member of our Education Team if you are interested and wish to discuss an annual subscription to our Group EsLA CORE.
