Winter Gritting, Snow Clearance & Snow Removal Services for Education: Schools, Colleges & Universities

“...I cannot thank you enough for helping sculpture our landscape. Everyone can take pride in helping create such a lovely learning environment. ...”

Head Teacher, School

GRITIT DBS checks all its staff, regular or enhanced depending on the school's particular requirement. Just as the CRB used to do, the DBS conducts background and criminal record checks on behalf of employers across England and Wales. Once presented with a certificate that reveals if the applicant has a criminal record, we then make better informed hiring decisions. This is particularly important when hiring people to work with children and vulnerable adults.

For schools,
GRITIT offers you a team that can be as flexible as you need - ie working outside the hours when pupils, parents and teachers are onsite. On top of that, our superb technology allows you to receive the notifications of when we've been and when we're done - all to your email, PDA or mobile device.

Why use GRITIT?

“ ...GRITIT's mission is to ensure that your critical operations are never interrupted, that you continue to maximize the value of and revenue from your infrastructure, and that the state of your infrastructure never causes you any reputational damage or legal claims

Jason Petsch, CEO

For success, they have to accurately deal with budget constraints and strictly control expenses. How?

GRITIT's team is all DBS checked and certified
  • All our onsite staff are always DBS checked
  • We're careful to make sure that we train and certify all our team to the standards expected in your establishment

The choice is to do jobs like gritting, snow clearance, grounds and tarmac repair to a breadth of unqualified and uncertified third partyies or to go with the accredited GRITIT team and let us do the legwork for you.

GRITIT complies 100% with health and safety

GRITIT's training and awareness courses keep all our team informed of health and safety requirements. We're grown up and sensible too.

Children and young adults can be less than careful when it comes to health and safety.

We know this, and as parents ourselves we go the extra mile to make sure that there are no hidden threats or dangers.

All our teams have regularly scheduled health and safety training and awareness courses.

GRITIT schedules and completes jobs for schools before you even open

All part of GRITIT's understanding that schools have a different requirement - borne of experience with across the nation's schools, colleges & universities.
