Well-maintained schools lead to better pupil outcomes

With everything from teacher workload to pupil achievement being affected by the school environment, it’s essential that schools get the most out of their soft and hard facilities management.

And because your school is unique, your FM strategy needs to be too. With different facilities, student cohort, budget and leadership objectives there is no ‘one-size fits all’ solution that works straight out of the box.

Support packages unique to you

That’s why we fully assess the unique dynamics in every school for opportunities and challenges – including resources, equipment and budgets – before designing and delivering fully bespoke solutions.

We can help with a wide range of support services and procurements:

  • school uniforms and workwear
  • stationery supplies
  • food supplies and management software
  • chemicals and disposables
  • janitorial supplies
  • reprographics services and equipment
  • equipment supply – catering and cleaning
  • ppm kitchen equipment maintenance
  • deep clean – canopies, ducting and vents
  • high-level window cleaning

Many of these services require specific monitoring programmes, and we can develop, support and manage them all.

What others say

Preparing to deliver UFSM to all Secondary School pupils was a unique and challenging project and Cohesion Consulting were a major player in its successful delivery. Throughout the project they were totally committed to the task, delivering a survey report on all 20 schools within a very short timescale which formed the basis of a Cabinet report that was approved. At every stage of the project, they offered practical and best value solutions that were achievable to ensure that schools could be ready to deliver UFSM. Their expertise in project management, contract negotiations, commissioning and mobilisation was essential and throughout they were honest and approachable with the ability to engage at all levels with schools and the whole project team which made working with them a pleasure during this challenging but exciting project.

Head of Estates and Operations

Glenn has supported us with cleaning and catering tenders. We were extremely impressed with the level of professionalism and integrity that he provided during our catering tender a few years ago and therefore had no hesitation in asking him to support us with our more recent cleaning one. He supported us all the way through the tender and made the whole process very straightforward and simple for us. I thoroughly appreciate the way in which he continues with his level of support once the contract has started and that he makes himself available for advice. His knowledge of both sectors is impressive and he is always mindful of achieving best value and a good fit for the school.

School Business Manager

Our school has benefited from Glenn’s expertise and knowledge over a number of years to support our tendered catering and cleaning contracts. Throughout that time, we have found his advice and support invaluable. He is always happy to make himself available to help with any queries and I think he stands out as his service continues to be provided well into the contracts life cycle and not just at the start where the fees are made. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services.
