Updates regarding Classcare
19 March 2020
From the 1 April 2020 the way we deliver our property services will change.
As part of this responsibility and oversight for the Classcare scheme will come back under the direct control of KCC’s Property function. The Gen2 staff you currently liaise with will transfer back into KCC and works will still be undertaken by the same contractors, AMEY and Skanska.
As you may know KCC had started to review the existing arrangements and hoped to introduce a replacement scheme this year. In view of the high level changes to the way that KCC delivers its property function there will now be a transition period for a year during which time the existing scheme will continue. The same terms and conditions, subject to a 3% inflationary increase, will be in place and we will ensure that you receive regular updates on spend to date, with advice available on how to make best use of the service on offer.
Over the coming year we will continue to seek your feedback on the shape and scope of a replacement scheme and hope to establish a pilot scheme with a small sample of schools to ensure suitability for full rollout in April 2021.
Classcare is intended to offer a valuable service to schools in helping to manage maintenance effectively and ensure statutory compliance. The Classcare scheme provides peace of mind for schools, particularly those with limited administrative resources through alleviating the burden of organising building works.
Existing school’s membership packages will continue, unless we hear otherwise. Any schools wishing to enquire or sign up to the classcare scheme, please complete and return the form (DOCX, 793.6 KB) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 March 2020.
