Havering Council’s education services team has received national recognition for its work with the borough’s schools.

It won an accolade at the UK Customer Experience Awards - receiving a silver award in the product or service development category.

The council was recognised for developing Havering Education Services (HES) to work with schools.

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.
