The strong working relationship that is forged between OES and its schools means we’ll tailor placements to your specific school’s requirements.

These checks are in accordance with the Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003 (Conduct Regulations) and are carried out before Outstanding Education Solutions introduces a candidate to a school.  As a member of the REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) OES are updated regularly with any statutory guidance and/or changes.

When you make a booking

If you need to arrange cover this can be done over the telephone, by email or by text. Once a member of staff has been placed into your booking a confirmation email will be sent. An example can be found here.

Safeguarding training and CPD

Safeguarding is of paramount importance to OES.  Annual comprehensive safeguarding training is offered at the start of every academic year with the expectation that all staff attend. This training is delivered by an external training company specialising in safeguarding. If this training is missed, alternative comprehensive training will be offered through an online course.

Throughout the year (where possible) further courses are offered to OES staff. This includes behavioural management, SPaG and, equality and diversity in education.


Any allegation or concern regarding an OES staff member should be reported to your consultant as soon as possible. All information will be dealt with professionally and sensitively with appropriate action taken, including referrals to relevant bodies such as LADO where necessary.
