This involved setting up a system providing a pool of suppliers in areas such as occupational health, stationery and security systems, to save schools time and money.

Members of HES impressed awards judges with a presentation.

Councillor Robert Benham, cabinet member for education, children and families, said: "This is a well-deserved reward for HES and recognises the efforts and improvements we've made in customer experience over the past year.

"Being a part of the awards gave staff a chance to gain a greater appreciation of how organisations can create more meaningful experiences for customers."
