St Nicholas is a two form entry primary school full of highly motivated and talented children and a creative, energetic staff who strive to ensure that every single child has a fulfilled and broad curriculum enabling them to excel as independent learners.
With their catering contract ending in March 2017, St Nicholas sought the help of Schools’ Buying Club to run a fully compliant tender process to appoint their catering provider.
We asked Karen Beasley, the School Business Manager, at St Nicholas C of E School what she thought about working with Schools’ Buying Club and the told us……
“We used their (SBC) services to procure a contractor for our School Catering Provision – the new contract started in April 2017. The Schools’ Buying Club team were efficient and listened to the schools requirements before writing the tender specification. They hosted a supplier visit day where we met potential bidders and then evaluated the tender responses.
We recently held a post mobilisation three month contract review meeting with the SBC team. The new contractors are providing an excellent and much improved service.
We are very happy with the service provided by the Schools Buying Club and would certainly consider using their services again.”
Time is ticking for an April Contract start date. Let Schools’ Buying Club take the pain out of the Procurement Process, contact us today and let us help you save money!.”
