As one of the UK’s foremost multi-sector cleaning companies, Vanguard have been at the pinnacle of the cleaning industry for over 20 years, with the reviews and reputation to support that exceptional position.
All of our school cleaners are fully DBS-certified, and understand the rigours and demands of an educational environment. We use a comprehensive, BICSc training system to ensure all of our staff are able to provide the professional and robust levels of cleaning your school needs.
From bespoke private academies, to larger buildings and campuses, our cleaning staff are ideally equipped to provide a professional, high-quality cleaning package.
Schools are hugely diverse environments, with a heavy footfall from students, staff members and a regular stream of visitors. That constant movement means that schools are hotspots for dirt, grime and viruses, which drives home the need for robust and effective cleaning.
Vanguard offers complete cleans of all classroom areas, including disinfecting desks, dusting, vacuuming, and organisation, with stringent disinfection protocols for communal and dining areas. We can also offer comprehensive cleaning of specialised classrooms, such as science labs and changing rooms.
Plus, with our extensive and rigorous deep cleaning service, we can offer complete infection control measures to stop seasonal viruses like norovirus, colds and flu.
Outside of a more welcoming and accommodating environment for your students, there’s multiple reasons why you should be striving for a more sanitary school:
While Ofsted’s inspections don’t actively measure cleanliness, it plays a pivotal role in a few of their stringent criteria, especially when it comes to cleanliness and sanitation in toilets and kitchen areas. It can also play a part in how Ofsted score student behaviour and safety at your school if messy classrooms and corridors are having a detrimental impact.
Employing a professional, commercial cleaning company like Vanguard can ensure you create a safe, clean environment for your students and the inspector. You’ll then be able to focus on providing the most comprehensive and well-rounded educational experience possible.
As one of the UK’s leading providers of cleaning services, we’re able to provide a completely bespoke service for your school. We tailor-make every aspect of what we offer, and ensure that it fits with not only your unique environment and challenges, but within your budget too.
All of our staff are fully checked by DBS, and will have experience in cleaning a huge range of different environments. Plus, we’re exceptionally proud of our BICSc-approved training system that ensures all of our staff have the same exceptional levels of quality and professionalism.
Of course! Vanguard’s extensive history encompasses multiple different premises, including both public and private establishments. We’re able to meet the rigorous and often diverse demands of private schools.
This is something we’ll discuss with you in-depth during our first consultations, and we’ll work diligently to ensure that we create a solution that matches with the needs of your premises, its staff and its students.
All of our cleaners are fully checked and confirmed by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), as well as undergoing multiple other vetting and eligibility tests to ensure the safety and security of your cleaners.
Vanguard then takes this a step further, with a comprehensive safeguarding report that contains details and pictures of all cleaners.
When you first make an enquiry with Vanguard, we’ll begin drawing up a contract that not only matches with what you and your school needs, but with the budget you’re working with, as well as any other special requirements.
We use full-time, annual contracts, where you’ll be billed on a monthly, recurring basis. This allows you to “lock in” a stable price over the course of your contract, and ensure there’s no nasty surprises when it comes to inflation rates or rising costs.
Our head offices are located in North Wales, in the small town of Oswestry. However, our service extends far beyond there, and we can cover all of Wales, North West England, and the West Midlands.
If you’re unsure whether or not we can cover your school, get in touch today and our knowledgeable operatives will be more than happy to help!
Not at all! Our 21 years of experience means we’re well-versed in schools and educational buildings of all sizes, and can clean classrooms of any shape or capacity, as well as any specialised rooms like lecture halls, labs, sports halls or kitchens.
We have a meticulous, thorough approach to our training. It’s all done through the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc), which outlines key standards and accreditation to ensure that your school is cleaned to the highest possible level.
All of our sites are regularly audited to guarantee the continued quality of your cleaning, and we work relentlessly to adhere to the guidelines set out by the BICSc and other governing bodies for the cleaning industry.
Our flexibility and accommodating nature means we can fit around your school and its timetable. We find that many schools choose to have us clean in the morning before school starts (as early as 5am), or after school has finished (up to as late as 10pm).
Our only stipulation is that we don’t currently offer overnight services, but we often find that many schools will want their cleaning just before students arrive, or shortly after they’ve left.
All of our cleaning services are completely tailormade and designed to match with everything your school buildings, rooms and grounds need.
While we naturally can’t give an average price for the service we provide, we strive to ensure that the bespoke service we provide is not only exactly what you and your premises needs, but that it also matches with the budget you have.
