Mind the gap

Do you know where you are today with your school’s compliance?

With a mountain of paperwork to maintain and, more importantly, needing to keep records of any renewal dates and appointments for checks, it’s easy to lose track of where your school stands in the realm of compliance. How do you know that you’ve captured everything needed and made arrangements for any remedial works to be scheduled in?

An effective and cost-efficient way of keeping track of your compliance status is with a gap analysis, which provides a snapshot in time of your school’s compliance. A gap analysis will verify that a valid condition survey is in place as well as the school’s fire risk assessment, water tests, alarms, risk assessments, competent contractor checks and any other occupier and in-house checks.

By engaging a professional to fulfil a gap analysis, you will save time and with an organisation like Strictly Education’s Property Support Gap Analysis, your school can benefit from checks that all necessary policies are in place and template policies where they’re not.

There should be no concerns over having a gap analysis completed in school, as the aim is simply to determine the school’s compliance position and existing procedures, without the finger of blame being pointed. Strictly Education’s gap analysis can be with you in a few days and above the current snapshot, delivers a roadmap for a school on how to move forward with a list of priorities.
