The UKSSN Operations Group
Posted by : Operations Group

The UKSSN Operations Group is a growing network of School Business Professionals, Estates Managers, Ops Managers, Governors and Trustees working together in schools to improve sustainability via procurement, operations, estates, marketing, catering etc. The group, co-chaired by Helen Burge (DCOO, Priory Learning Trust) and Paul Edmond (CFO, Heart Academies Trust), meets online 4-5 pm once a month and has a UKSSN-hosted Microsoft Teams site for discussion and resource sharing. 


A key mission of the UKSSN Ops Group is to raise awareness of school operations and estates in sustainability matters within the sector.


  • Look out for members of the Ops Group speaking about school sustainability at various regional and national events, such as the Association of School and College Leaders conference or the Schools and Academies Show.


  • Listen to the new UKSSN Greener Schoolscast, produced by the Ops Group co-chairs Paul and Helen in collaboration with the Institute for School Business Leadership: Episode 1 (on school sustainability policies); Episode 2 (on energy); Episode 3 (on whole trust strategies).
