The school environment for learning can have a profound effect upon pupil achievement – positively or negatively. Therefore, well managed facilities are a vital but often unnoticed component of a highly effective school. Ensuring buildings and their assets are operationally ready and in good condition will minimise disruption, leaving you free to concentrate on the all-important standards in the classroom.
Facilities Management covers a plethora of different, often complex, services, and keeping on top of this provides a significant challenge for schools.
As a result, the Schools’ Buying Hub North West has created a number of useful resources to ensure schools have all the information required to purchase their Facilities Management services effectively. Each category page includes details of how to buy, key considerations as well as the best deals and most appropriate framework agreements available to your school.
