Changing from Swanley Technology College in 2010, Orchards Academy has around 550 students and currently achieves a “good” rating across the board with their Ofsted reports. Following the change to Academy status, the Head wanted to continue with a program which would help keep the estate clean, welcoming and safe for staff, visitors and students.
CK Group has been offering their services to Orchards Academy for some years now. To avoid disrupting the learning environment, we operate our cleaning schedule outside of school hours with specialist deep cleans scheduled between terms. As is required in the educational setting, all our operatives are enhanced DBS screened and trained to adhere to the Academy’s security requirements.
The classrooms vary from standard teaching environments to art studies, laboratories, pottery rooms, workshops and a large indoor sports hall. All of these require very different approaches to cleaning and this has all be taken into consideration in our daily and periodic routines.
Additionally we assist with the external impression by graffiti removal and have a rapid response team available for “unexpected events” such as flooding, building maintenance cleans, etc.
We meet regularly with the school’s services manager to provide performance monitoring results and to discuss planned future needs.
