Energy Procurement – Savings and Stability

Following Adam McDermott’s extensive work to consolidate our energy supply chain, we recently signed Gas and Electricity contracts totalling £1,757,813 over three years. These contracts provide the Trust stability in a turbulent market.  They also generate immediate cash savings of £37,000 per and – by staving off inflation – collectively save £371,000 in real terms over three years. This is a powerful example of the power of our collaborative working methodology.  Such significant non-staffing savings help us to focus the maximum possible resource in classrooms, our main thing. We will be discussing future procurement opportunities with Principals at the upcoming briefings to establish termly priorities which focus our efforts on our most powerful opportunities. Thanks to Adam for his excellent work.



Joanna Hague
Jo finished on the 28th February to have her baby. We would like to collectively wish Jo all the best and look forward to seeing her with the new arrival at some point in the near future. Lorraine Ford will be picking up the main functions previously undertaken by Jo, supported by Ian Booth, through to next December.
