Independent

Independent schools are increasingly turning to outsourcing as the most efficient way to guarantee an efficient and flexible cleaning service. One of the key challenges to managing cleaning in-house is providing back up and cover when staff are absent, whether unplanned, for example sickness, or planned such as holidays. The increased trend for events to take place after school, at weekends or during school holidays also creates pressure to forward plan staff deployment.

Add to this the frequent requirement for a full-time site manager, daytime cleaning staff to work in the boarding facilities and a schedule of deep cleaning to keep the school in tip top condition and it makes sense to pass responsibility for cleaning to a professional cleaning company like Vervia.

Academies, Free and Local Authority Schools

At Vervia we welcome the seismic changes that have taken place in secondary education in the Last three to four years. We are enjoying some fascinating and frank discussions with Business Managers about how we can structure cleaning contracts to better suit their constantly changing needs.

School can be a demanding environment to clean, meaning that a detailed specification is vital to maintaining a safe and hygienic environment. Our key objective in school cleaning is to help prevent the spread of infection and sickness and we have plenty of routines designed to contribute to this aim.

Security is also an important part of school cleaning and as well as carrying out enhanced DBS checks on all staff who work in schools, we provide training in both safeguarding and the identification of young people at risk under the Government’s PREVENT strategy.

Primary

Vervia is well-versed in the particular challenges of cleaning primary schools. We know all about sandpits and ‘little accidents’.

If you are a small-to-medium sized primary school looking to leave a local authority framework and change cleaning contractor, you do not normally need to go through a formal procurement process. Obtaining three quotes is sufficient.

Over the last three to four years, we have helped over twenty schools switch successfully, with a minimum of fuss, from contracts with which they were completely dissatisfied. In all cases they are still with us and enjoying an open and frank relationship that is driving up cleaning standards. As part of this  approach, we adopt a flexible attitude to contract terms, preferring to rely on our performance when it comes to retaining clients.
