Cornwall Council has agreed to delay cutting a number of school crossing patrols.
The council was hoping to save £80,000, but it will carry out a risk assessment first before making a final decision.
It has also reached a deal with the RNLI to maintain the current level of lifeguard cover on 57 beaches, despite reducing its contribution to the charity from £1.4million to £950,000.
Watch a video of Landewednack Primary School in Cornwall transformed to a winter wonderland.
It has that eerie quiet of snow before the first person sets foot on it.... let alone a whole class!
Pupils from Landewednack primary school on the Lizard have had a day to remember after snow fell overnight.
The winter wonderland came courtesy of Twitter's @thetwofairies, who go around the country carrying out random acts of kindness. In this case, snow is very unlikely to fall near the school, which is at the most southerly tip of the UK and the air is too salty.
See the children's reaction to their snow surprise:
Children arriving at Landewednack primary in Cornwall had the surprise of their lives today - snow had fallen overnight transforming the Victorian building into the perfect Christmas card.
The magical transformation is the work of a Twitter group @thetwofairies who specialise in random acts of kindness. You can see their mark on the side of the school.
By the wonders of modern technology, sorry, the wave of a wand, it was actually snowing as the pupils arrived.
It's a big surprise. Our school is the most southerly in the country and the air is very salty so we never get snow. Some of the younger children have never seen snow but this is the real thing - you can even throw snow balls.
The children will come back from half term ready to start their winter project. Short of a trip to the North Pole this is the next best thing.
Two fairies who have taken to spreading their magic across the country have turned their attention to Landewednack CP School, the southernmost school in Britain where it never snows - except today.
The sea, the hills; Cornwall, you're enchanting! But no time to surf - your wishes need granting! #FollowTheFairies

A man who admitted indecently assaulting boys at a private school in Devon has appeared in court in Birmingham accused of 27 further sexual offences involving young boys in Kenya.
Simon Harris has already pleaded guilty to sex offences committed against three pupils, all aged between 13 and 14, while he was employed at Shebbear College in the 1980s.
Today the court was told how he "preyed" on Kenyan street children as young as six years old. Harris denies the charges.
An average of two children in every primary school classroom has suffered from abuse or neglect, according to the NSPCC.
In response, the charity wants to take a touring roadshow into every school, teaching younger children how they can stay safe.
A school is counting the cost of flash floods in Exeter. Ladysmith Infant School was forced to close today after three classrooms were damaged by running water.
