The Quality Standards Framework for SEND is a tool that supports schools and settings in reflecting upon their SEND practice; identifying areas of strength and areas for development. Along with the framework itself there are a number of reference documents to help schools and settings to recognise “what good looks like”, enabling comparison and providing a springboard for potential future development. A development planning document is also included in the framework.

We are Committed to Innovation and Excellence in Cleaning Our comprehensive cleaning service is specifically built to meet the challenges of the educational sector. We have developed and implemented robust quality measures to ensure we deliver the highest quality service for schools/academies. We recognise the challenges schools face with the maintenance of their premises and as such we have developed a transparent, cost effective and personal school cleaning service, tailored to fit the needs of your organisation. We understand schools can have different requirements and challenges which is why we have developed two primary cleaning packages for the educational sector. Enhanced Cleaning Service ENGIE’s enhanced service offers schools added flexibility allowing school managers and supervisors to direct the cleaners if required onto unplanned tasks. Like the standard service below, ENGIE’s team of cleaners will follow our agreed plan, but this service also allows the head teachers/Business Managers more flexibility in their cleaning package and allows movement as required around the plan. Standard Cleaning ServiceThis package follows a very specific programme for our dedicated cleaners to follow. The cleaning plan is agreed upfront by all parties and is delivered to spec by our team. Whilst this package offers value for money, it may not be suitable for some schools/academies who are looking for more flexibility with their cleaning package as ad hoc requests will be chargeable.
