II.2.4) Description of the procurement: The successful Supplier will be required to provide cleaning services for Kensington Aldridge Academy. 1 Silchester Road London W10 6EX Cleaning Contract Scope of opportunity statement Kensington Aldridge Academy (KAA) is a large secondary school in north Kensington, London W10. The school was built in 2014 and now has 1,250 students aged 11-18. It is a single academy trust but with close relations with the Aldridge Education MAT which is our co-sponsor, together with the local authority, the Royal Borough of Kensington ad Chelsea. KAA is located directly next to Grenfell Tower and five of its students tragically died in the fire, with many other students and staff being directly affected. Following the fire, the school re-located for a year to a temporary site close by. The school has a large sports hall, a 250 seat theatre and specialist dance and drama areas. There are around 170 staff made up of 100 teachers and 70 support staff. KAA was judged outstanding in all areas at its last OFSTED inspection. The school was built to a high specification and continues to be maintained to a very high standard. Good quality and cost effective cleaning is an important part of the school’s operations. The contract being tendered is for three years in duration from September 2023 to August 2026 with an option for a further two years to September 2028. The contract will operate as a Guaranteed Performance Contract, with the successful contractor offering the School a fixed cost per annum for the provision of cleaning services. The school year is based on a calendar of 180 teaching days with an additional 15 days when only staff are in school for planning, preparation and training. The teaching day finishes at 4-00pm. There is a two week half term in the autumn. The building is open throughout the year except for public holidays so staff can work in school holidays, and we need day janitor provision for all weekdays. KAA is used for outside lettings in the evenings and at weekends. Lettings are managed by an outsourced company and they undertake their own cleaning. The proposed contract covers the provision of all cleaning services within the School, which currently also includes window cleaning, consumables and periodic cleaning. The current total square meterage of the building is 11,500 m2 spread over five floors. During 2023 an extension of 8 classrooms will be built on the third floor terrace area facing Silchester Road. This will add approx. 500 m2 to the site. The extension has a planned start on site of June 2023 with a completion date scheduled for December 2023. A full site plan is available. Whilst KAA prioritises value for money as a key objective of the competitive tender process, the Governing Body is not obliged to accept the lowest price. The value of the current contract for 2022-23 is £214,404 for the core cleaning operations. KAA expects the successful contractor to continue to develop its cleaning services. We expect the successful tenderer to evidence, through their bid, how they shall support and complement our values and support the school to give students the best possible environment for their studies. We expect the successful contractor to be a good employer in every sense with a commitment to staff development and to retaining staff over a long period so there is consistency in the team. The successful contractor is likely to be a London Living Wage employer and to be committed to high standards of environmental and health and safety practice. See SQ document for further details.
