Managed Print and Supply Chain Focus
As with any school, budgets at Dene Magna are carefully managed and value for money is a must. When Business Manager, Janet Ray, brought in Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA), the initial aim was to save costs. However, Janet quickly realised the scope of ERA’s expertise offered much more than financial benefits. Four years on, an agile and strategic partnership continues to deliver greater visibility on spend, improved service levels and advice on the latest solutions. As well as ongoing savings!
Dene Magna School is a mixed secondary school in Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire. It currently educates 860 pupils between the ages 11 to 16 and just been given permission to open a sixth form provision from Sept 2019. The school proudly holds the vision: “That each and every learner shall achieve their maximum potential and enjoy the process.” This is re-enforced in the fact that in Nov 2012 the school was graded as Outstanding by Ofsted and has retained this status ever since.

“Working with ERA is great because it’s all done at no risk to the school. The work that they do helps with budgeting yearon-year and does allow us to spend elsewhere. As well as being highly professional, everyone has always been a pleasure to work with. I would and have recommended them to other schools.”
