Pupils and staff are at the heart of our estates vision to transform the learning environments of our schools and ensure our buildings are continually being developed and improved to maximise the teaching and learning opportunities of our school spaces.
A streamlined approach to property maintenance and servicing brings all schools in the trust under our estates management structure to ensure all schools are compliant, safe and meet all statutory requirements, easing the burden on school leaders to focus on teaching and learning and ensure efficient use of school maintenance budgets.
The trust receives School Condition Allocation (SCA) funding each year which is used to target the larger building condition improvement projects. The trust SCA strategy identifies the areas of the building to prioritise first and is working towards all schools reaching the same level, for example all schools having new roofs, heating systems, fire safety systems and lighting.
