A comprehensive set of packages designed to support caretaking provision at your school.
Caretaker training package
A comprehensive training package designed to keep your caretaker up to date with relevant law and legislation in relation to the role of a caretaker.
This package provides a range of courses and more information can be found via the link on this page. Alternatively, non – members may be able to purchase training service individually on an ad – hoc basis, subject to availability.
As a service we can provide all schools and academies with cover for your caretaker during periods of sickness absence. Owing to the extreme degree of fluctuation in the demands placed upon the service, we cannot guarantee ‘’like for like’’ cover but we will endeavour to match our response as closely as possible to your normal level of cover.
Customers of the peripatetic service also receive preferential rates from our Agency Service for non – sickness absence, such as annual leave cover, vacancy management, compassionate leave and suspension and training.
Within your membership to the Peripatetic Scheme you will be able to access the following:
Support in maintenance of standards
Support in recruitment/selection
Achieving full compliance with health and safety legislation
Support with grievance and disciplinary procedures
Support in trade union negotiations
As a service, we pride ourselves on our ability to adapt to ever changing environments and the demands that this can bring.
We are able to undertake a wide range of additional tasks such as; hall floor restoration, painting/decorating, repairs to fixtures and fittings along with furniture removals to name a few.
Further information can be obtained by contacting the Caretaking and Cleaning office directly for a quote or to arrange a site visit.
Caretaker agency service
It is important that you receive the right level of staff cover for periods of caretaker absence, particularly if they are responsible for opening and securely locking the building at either end of the day. This will encompass periods for annual leave, compassionate leave and suspension, vacancy management and training.
For non – member schools, our Agency Aervice can assist you and enable you to receive suitable cover for periods of absence such as sickness, vacancy management and annual leave. This cover is chargeable by the hour, enabling you to budget properly for your individual needs.
Our first response, however, will always be to meet the needs of those customers who are part of the scheme. Therefore, we are not necessarily able to guarantee a response under all circumstances.
