A word from the CEO

As a not-for-profit, schools' owned company, we pride ourselves in working exclusively for the benefit of our members and have continued to do so throughout this difficult period. We have ensured over 5,000 school staff are paid on time and correctly each month, clerked 450 remote school governance meetings, provided a 24-hour critical incident helpline, trained over 720 school staff in first aid and produced Covid related data analytics on the latest position in Newham schools. We have also planned for the future by testing out various scenarios and will continue working alongside you as your school support partner.

In terms of company performance, last year The Education Space reported an underlying profit, improved customer satisfaction from 90% to 92% and recorded a 98% retention rate. This would not have been possible without your continued support and loyalty to The Education Space - thank you!
