Managed Connectivity Services for schools

emPSN and Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) – A working partnership

Lincolnshire County Council is an owner of emPSN. emPSN is a not-for-profit Company, here for the public good, supporting Lincolnshire and other schools in the East Midlands now and into the future.

Lincolnshire schools core broadband service charges have been funded from the Lincolnshire Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) since 2012. From 2022 this will change, as LCC can no longer access this Central Services Block funding schools will no longer benefit from this funding.

emPSN will continue to provide the same connectivity and IT services as always. Removal of this grant does not have to mean a change to your services as emPSN is here to ensure there is a smooth transition with no impact to your service.  In preparation for the changes to funding from November 2022, we will be communicating with Lincolnshire schools direct with continuity options working with Lincolnshire County Council to ensure a smooth change.
