HES Announced as Winner of Silver Award
Last Thursday (10th October 2019) Havering Education Services (HES) were announced as SILVER AWARD winners at the UK Customer Experience Awards 2019 (CXA) in the Product or Service Development category.
CXA is a national awards programme that recognises organisations and individuals who strive to enhance their customer experience through innovative means. The awards celebrated its tenth anniversary this yesterday and spans across industries with large organisations such as Aldi, Sky, O2, and DHL all being shortlisted for the awards.
It was incredible to have been supported on the day by two of our schools: Corbets Tey Special School and Hornchurch Academy Trust and their respective Business Managers, Susan Cumbers and Jo Sladden who attended the event and co-presented to the panel of judges with us.
HES’ award win is an important achievement and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams and a thriving partnership model that is helping to enhance our offer to schools and settings.

Preparation For the Winter Season
In preparation for the winter season, please be aware that Havering's Highways Team can assist you with preparations for snow or severe weather conditions. The Highways Winter Plan will be available on the Havering website soon and will give details on those carriageways and footways that will be gritted as a priority during frost, ice or snow. Click here for last year’s plan for information.
During snow-down conditions, the Highways Team will endeavour to ensure that access roads to as many schools as possible across the borough are treated. This may not result in the areas immediately outside schools are treated, as entrances to some schools are in areas that the gritting lorries cannot access, but the team will endeavour to get as close to the schools as possible.
If you would like to purchase a salt bin for your school premises, these can be purchased directly from the supplier Glasdon UK. The salt itself can be ordered via Highways, the contact is Helen Gibson on 01708 433249.
The costs are as follows:
¼ Ton - £95
½ Ton - £110
1 Ton - £150
1 ½ Tonnes - £165
Highways can deliver up to 10T if required, the price is available on application.
Please ensure that should you require salt to be delivered to your premises that an order is placed as soon as possible, as should the severe weather commences, the Highways Team will be required to work to the Winter Plan, and so deliveries of salt will be secondary.
