Background to the School Case Study
Based in South East London, within the London Borough of Southwark, our client’s School delivers a high-quality standard of education, within an open and welcoming environment to students with learning difficulties.
The range of disabilities requires the contribution of a multidisciplinary team with physiotherapists, occupational therapist, speech and language therapists and special school support assistants, all working co-cooperatively with the teaching staff to meet the individual needs of the students.
Redesigning an FM service that works for the education environment
Freidman was awarded a contract to deliver Facilities Management Services. The portfolio of services is extensive; it covers mechanical and electrical maintenance (which includes both a site-based team and full mobile building services maintenance support), cleaning and grounds maintenance, feminine hygiene, swimming pool maintenance and water hygiene. The service also extend to security systems, fire and lightning protection, portable appliance testing, patient lifting, window cleaning and key holder services. We also provide a full catering service within the restaurant and procure and supply all catering equipment.
Safeguarding is of paramount importance when delivering services within schools and residential care facilities where our teams are working alongside both children and particularly vulnerable members of the community. All our employees undergo a strict, rigorous screening process during both recruitment and induction which includes an enhanced DBS check to ensure that no one is put under any risk by our activities.
