Who would be responsible for staff DBS, training and safeguarding?
EDU Lettings has a partnership with KO Safeguarding who provide guidance, support and consultancy – while ensuring all of our policies are in line with Keeping Children Safe In Education guidance. As part of our safer recruitment policy, all our teams are DBS checked prior to working on site, and our dedicated Regional Operations Manager deliver ongoing safeguarding training, guidance and workflows to the team. We want to give our recreation teams the opportunity to thrive and grow within the sport and leisure industry, not only do we provide training, guidance and experience we also fund professional growth in areas including Risk Assessment, COSHH, Manual Handling and Pool Plant Operations.
Who would be responsible for the extra cleaning that comes with lettings?
At Edu-Lettings we pride ourselves on leaving your facilities and venue ready to use for the next working day. Our recreation teams undertake regular site walks, as well as having time both before and after clients arrive to guarantee all areas are left clean, clear and tidy. Your venue will not require additional resource to clean for lettings and all cleaning needs for community use will be handled by our on site team.
How do you handle payments, invoicing and debt?
Our hirer relations team manage all aspects of hirer payments, this includes creating bookings, handling enquiries, organising payments and invoices and all of our bookings pay in advance of use which stops anyone using any space that has not been paid.
Clients have the options to organise payments weekly, fortnightly, and monthly which create automated payments making life easy for the hirer groups.
What will happen to our current hirers?
During the initial set up of your venue, our dedicated team will discuss all current and previous hirers with you, confirming we are aware of any users that have been previously banned from site, and to ensure all current hirers are contacted and retained before we market your facility. If you wish, we will also honour any existing rates for the rest of that academic year to assist with the transition for all hirers.
How do you intend to maximise our lettings income?
Our Head of Service drives forward lettings to ensure a full and diverse program. Utilising Social Media, an industry leading booking system, local outreach and a clear focus on utilisation, hirer mapping and accurate pricing are just a few ways our Hirer Relations Team fills our venues with both local clubs, groups, and our network of national partners.
How do the school receive account information and income from lettings?
Our team will not only be on hand at all times to ensure the service you receive exceeds expectation, but you will also be sent a clear monthly account, breaking down all finances and invoicing prompts, as well as a full operational update. You can also, at any time, download live financial and hirer reports from our online booking system.
In September 2020 we became a client of Edu-lettings and have not looked back. Throughout what has been a really difficult period of lockdown, Edu-lettings have communicated effectively and efficiently and ensured lettings took place in the Autumn term safely and in line with Covid requirements. EduLettings worked closely with us as a school and their professionalism has been second to none. Staff are professional and courteous and our lettings enquiries have been increasing. The feedback from our lettings customer, some of whom have been with our school for many years, is that the customer service and communication from EduLettings has been excellent. We cannot recommend their services enough!
Sam Finch, Business Manager
From the beginning, EDU have been superb. All the information is easy to access and paying couldn’t be easier. At the venue we have been made very welcome by everyone. During these difficult times, we feel very safe and Covid aware as we are provided with all that’s necessary to make us safe and our event enjoyable. Thanks!

Edu-Lettings have been wonderful. They have delivered on every aspect that we require. They looked after our clients during the transition from our previous provider. When faced with Covid-19 restrictions, they worked with us to find a way to ensure lettings could continue whilst maintaining Covid safe measures. I would strongly recommend Edu-Lettings to any school or MAT looking for a professional fully managed service.

Fantastic company to work with. Sorting junior football pitch hire is a minefield, Nick and the team can’t do enough to ensure the kids from Daisy Hill Juniors have been able to enjoy their fitness, fun and passion for the game in what has been a very difficult year. Thanks Guys!!
Nick and his team provide a seamless end to end lettings service for our 3G pitch. Despite the challenging circumstances this year, they have continued to deliver a great service to both the School and our 3G clients.
