Are you ready for your next school inspection?

Inspections are always a nervy thing for school officials to prepare for; they require plenty of time for preparation which can mean taking vital resources away from other important areas of the school. There’s worry too that people in-house may not have the right skills or approach to represent the school in order to conquer the all-important inspection.

Thankfully, there’s an easy way to do things that lessen the impact on you and your team, and help you meet the criteria set out for school inspections - outsourcing your Regulatory Compliance preparation, in addition to HR and Health and Safety.

Regulatory Compliance

Our special consultancy services delivered by experienced leaders in this field can assist you with the preparation of all the required policies and procedures and assist you to implement all aspects of regulatory compliance to ensure the best possible inspection outcome and foundations for continuous development of your school.

Human Resources

For a school to perform well you need to make sure each of your members of staff - at all levels - are able to work together, adapt to change and work compliantly. We’re specialists in HR and can help you deal with employee relations, staff performance, organisational changes, safer recruitment practices along with pay, benefits and rewards.

Health and Safety

It’s no secret that Health and Safety in a school environment is of a massive importance, ensuring you’re not just up to date, but proactively dealing with the safety of pupils, staff and visitors.

We can help you with this aspect of your school; assessing and auditing your school building and facilities, reviewing current procedures, along with recommending and drafting new ones where appropriate. Our service covers all aspects of Health and Safety including Risk Assessments, Fire Safety, and of course those that are required as part of a school inspection. We can also recommend and deliver all necessary health and safety training.

Our Documentation and Systems service is specifically designed to provide a simple, no-hassle route to match the current regulatory requirements, legislation and best practice.

Experience with schools

When it comes to the education sector, we have a vast amount of experience helping independent schools in many different aspects. One of the organisations we worked with is Stoke College, an Independent school whose Headmaster said:

"Our Human Resources consultant has helped with contracts, appraisal, and compliant policies as well as with a range of particular HR conundrums that had previously taxed us beyond our ability to deal with them. Our H&S advisor has led us through the compliance minefield to a point where we are very comfortable with the outcome. I recommend Park City to any school."

We’ve also provided services for St George’s Ascot, whose headmistress said:

"It was a huge relief once we had appointed Park City. Their staff made every effort to come and visit us to really understand our nuances and then when we had a problem we were able to pick up the phone or email and get a rapid response from someone who knew us and has been through other issues with us. Appointing Park City has been one of the best decisions that we have ever made, it has increased our peace of mind and also means that we are not afraid to tackle difficult staffing issues."

The Benefits of Working with Park City

All our services that help your next school inspection are designed to help you meet (and exceed) the government standards, ensuring you pass with flying colours. The benefits of using an outsourced provider are many:-

Reduced Costs - Taking staff away from their usual commitments leaves a knock-on effect for both the staff and the school as a whole. It can take months to catch-up and restore the balance.
Efficiency - Keep performance on-track and consistently developing, showing stakeholders a clear sign of improvement and return.
Expertise - Get the right people with the right skills and a proven track record to help, thus avoiding mistakes which can impact your finances, reputation and your relationships.

Here at Park City we can offer you services on a project basis or outsourced on-going services on a retained basis, which can be tailor-made to your school’s needs, whatever they may be. Our Education Specialist team include Katie, Colin, Paul, Roly, David, Ashley and Deborah are always on hand to help in any way they can.
