Schools are at the heart of our community, bringing together pupils, parents, staff & clients of all walks of life.
Having a clean school is paramount to attract new pupils & give the right impression to all who visit.
The physical environment of school buildings and school grounds is a key factor in the overall health and safety of students, staff, and visitors. School buildings and grounds must be designed and maintained to be free of health and safety hazards, and to promote learning. Studies have shown that student achievement can be affected either positively or negatively by the school environment.
A growing body of researchers has found that school facilities can have a profound impact on both teacher and student outcomes. With respect to teachers, school facilities affect teacher recruitment, retention, commitment, and effort. With respect to students, school facilities affect health, behaviour, engagement, learning, and growth in achievement. Thus, researchers generally conclude that if facilities are well maintained teachers & children will treat the premises with respect.
SCC understands that there are many regulations to cleaning a school.
All SCC Contractors are uniformed & if required, wear an identification badge on site.
SCC staff have a CRB background check these are carried out on all individuals employed in a location where minors are present.
SCC Contractors undergo strict training program of how they must conduct themselves whilst at a school premises. Our first priority is Health and Safety, teaching contractors about the risks involved with being within the school grounds, around children & ensuring that certain areas whilst being worked upon are correctly restricted to all pupils. We ensure that our contractors have the correct Personal Protective Equipment, and what to do in an emergency, in-line with all the relevant legislation.
SCC’s second stage of the program is based on each specific location at which each contractor works and involves on-the-job instruction in cleaning techniques, to ensure that our cleaning is to the highest standards.
SCC Understands that school buildings range from New & modern to old & listed we take great care in assuring that each building is treat with up most care & attention.
Older buildings whose windows & frames are not strong & robust as modern windows are treated with much less pressure & each window is cleaned using our softer brushes, this ensure we protect the glass & frame but still give you the same sparkling finish.
