S4S Social Responsibility
At Services 4 Schools we are committed to operating a socially responsible business, both in how we work with schools as our customers, but also in terms of how we contribute to the wider communities they serve. All our staff are driven to ensure that the services we deliver have a lasting impact on improving outcomes for learners of all ages.
Supporting school communities
We think it is important for our employees to contribute however possible in building and maintaining school communities. Many of our staff sit on the Governing Boards in their local schools, offering their time in a voluntary capacity. Governing Boards gain benefit from the knowledge and experience of our education specialists, whilst in turn, our staff develop a key awareness and understanding of the challenges of decision making from within school.
Providing skills and opportunities
To support our commitment to local communities we have provided a number of work experience and work placement opportunities to young people from schools across the region. We now have a strong relationship with several schools and colleges who have sent pupils to experience how we operate our support services. Their experiences range from producing high level analysis of school performance to assisting in a marketing campaign and designing online content for our website.
Sport in the community
At S4S we are firm believers in the positive impact sport can make in the community and in particular, to life opportunities available to young people. We have invested in this belief through our corporate sponsorship of Beacon Lions Football team, Brewood Cricket Club and recently backing a multi-sport tour of the Netherlands undertaken by Queensbridge School in Birmingham. We have also supported Wolverhampton’s School Sport Partnership which strives to promote participation and completion in a broad range of sporting activities.
We are proud to sponsor Beacon Lions Under 11’s Football Team.
A run of great performances led to the boys finishing the season as 2015/16 Spring Cup Champions.
Congratulations and good luck for next season!
This year we supported Queensbridge School on their tour of the Netherlands. Football and netball teams from the school took part in a range of events, including mini-tournaments, a trip to PSV Eindhoven’s stadium, and training with England Netball.
