Submitting items to the school bulletin

The schools’ bulletin was created as a way of centralising information from the Local Authority to schools in a condensed manner and to reduce the volume of separate communications to schools

The bulletin is published term time only.

Submitting bulletin items

Before you submit items to the bulletin consider this checklist : 

  • Who – relevant audience within a school setting
  • What – summarise the item in the main body of the bulletin
  • When – include event and/or deadline dates
  • Where – full venue/area details
  • Why – reason the schools need to be aware of this item and any necessary action to be taken
  • Include a summary text in the main body of the bulletin item with any additional information provided via a link to your website, ensuring the link heading identifies its content. We recommend that your summary is no more than 100 words
  • Acronyms should only be used when accompanied by the full title in the first instance
  • Make sure you have edited and spell checked your item prior to submission
  • The deadline for submissions is 2pm on Thursday for inclusion the following week. Any submissions received after this will be included one week later. 
  • As a publicly funded body, the Council cannot promote a cause that exists for profit, therefore any such submissions will be politely rejected.
