Housekeeping award for Roedean

Brighton’s Roedean School has come out on top in an inspection of schools for housekeeping and cleanliness

For the second year running, Roedean girls’ school has been awarded a Gold CAP Award and received the highest score given to a school following an unannounced inspection. Kate Hawley, domestic bursar at Roedean, said the housekeeping team was delighted with the award: “To win gold two years on the trot is a wonderful achievement and a real recognition of all the hard work the housekeeping team puts in on a daily basis here at Roedean. To receive the highest score of any school inspected will be a real source of pride to everyone here at the school.”

Ian Jackson, director of the CAP Awards, said that the housekeeping team at Roedean had impressed him with their attention to detail: “Staff were very engaged and keen to see and understand the assessment process in their location, to see what areas are looked at and understand the reasoning and corrective actions that were taken.

“Such a high score is a real credit to the team at Roedean and it’s impressive to see that they have not rested on their laurels and continually strive to improve the cleanliness of the school for the pupils. There was also good evidence provided on corrective actions taken against the recommended actions in the 2014 report action plan.”

During the inspection, the cleanliness of the premises was scored, with the absence of dust and debris scoring the highest. All areas of the school were inspected, from the boarding houses through to the dance studio, classrooms and dining rooms. Each area had its score recorded according to cleanliness.
