“Stuart has a wealth of information at his fingertips gathered from many years working at the local Authority. Whenever we have needed advice, we find that Stuart responds promptly, always on the same day and usually within a few hours. He is readily contactable by phone if immediate advice is needed.
The advice is always just perfect and easy to implement in school. We would unreservedly recommend his services, they are just perfect.”
Testimonial from Sian – Headteacher
Blue Gate Fields Junior School
“We joined Juniper in January 2021. I have been impressed with the speed of answers to questions, the thoroughness of visits and the depth of knowledge available. All questions and queries have been fully explained and there has been a follow-up to check in with information or advice that has been given. I would not hesitate to recommend to other schools.”
Testimonial from Rebekah Greenslade – Acting Headteacher
Canon Barnett School
“Here at John Scurr we have been really impressed by what Juniper have to offer through their Health and Safety consultancy offer for schools. Having worked with Stuart McGregor for many years as a LB Tower Hamlets school it is now completely re-assuring to be able to reach out to him with issues, queries or requests, be they large or small, knowing that he already has an extensive knowledge of our context and building.
Over the past two terms it has been necessary to regularly check in with him for the latest COVID related advice and he has responded promptly with clear guidance. This, alongside the extensive corporate Risk Assessments, regularly updated to reflect the latest Government advice/requirements, has meant that schools have clarity moving forward. Away from COVID, we look forward to our ongoing Health and Safety partnership, whether it be Fire, Water, Asbestos or more general ‘safety’, backed up with a thorough audit to pinpoint the next action plan.”
Maria Lewington – Headteacher
John Scurr Primary School
“Lawdale School has worked with Stuart Mcgregor over many years and has found him to be highly experienced and knowledgeable in all things Health and Safety. He has a great understanding of how schools operate and provides relevant support, advice and guidance. He is always at hand to provide support and responds to emails and phone calls within a timely manner. We would definitely recommend his services.”
Sheniz Delfgou – Consultant
“We moved to Juniper Ventures in April 2021. We’ve worked with Stuart McGregor at our Local Authority for a number of years and always found him to be incredibly knowledgeable, approachable and supportive with a very balanced view of what it’s actually like to operate in an educational environment. So far, we have definitely made the right decision and we’re looking forward to many years of continued excellent service.”
Jackie Frost – School Business Manager
“We are using Juniper Ventures and the service they are delivering is outstanding. We are receiving prompt and accurate advice and guidance on, amongst other things, our COVID-19 queries and risk assessment. This is vital during these times. We have also, on request, received immediate on-site visits from Stuart to scrutinize the efficacy of the Health & Safety measures we have implemented at OLSJ.”
Patrick Devereux – Headteacher
Our Lady & St Joseph Catholic Primary School
“We are so grateful for the excellent support of Stuart and the team at Juniper. These are particularly challenging times to be leading a school but Stuart supports us by proactively providing me with updates to ensure we are fully compliant. He will also respond to requests and questions quickly so that we are able to ensure our school is safe: from health and safety audits to fire risk assessments and much more.”
Becky Dolamore – Headteacher
Rachel Keeling Nursery School
“I have been lucky enough to work with Stuart for many years, he is always our first port of call on any H&S queries, as well as carrying out H&S audits and fire risk assessments. When we learned Stuart had moved to Juniper, we didn’t hesitate transfer our supplier to Juniper. Stuart is friendly and approachable, explains things clearly and concisely. Stuart has delivered training to our staff and the feedback we received is always very positive.”
David Haroon – Premises Manager
Stephen Hawking School
“We have recently moved our SLA services for both H&S and FRA over to Juniper Ventures. Stuart, who has been our guiding officer for many years when working for LBTH recently visited us, providing the answers that we needed with ref to a fire risk query that we had here at Swanlea School.
We have already diarised a date for both our H&S and FRA audits to be carried out, later in the year. We have found Juniper Ventures to be quick to respond, organised and informative.”
Sam – School Business Manager
“Stuart has many years of health and safety experience and I have always found his advice to be excellent no matter what or how bizarre the issue is. When Stuart moved to Juniper and there was the opportunity to sign up for his services it was a no brainer for me and the headteacher. He now offers a service dedicated to schools and we continue to have the same excellent advice and support.”
Testimonial from Cheryl Wason – School Business Manager
Thomas Buxton School
“I have worked with Stuart McGregor for over 15 years in his capacity as Team Leader, Corporate Health & Safety for The London Borough of Tower Hamlets, as a colleague on the Health & Safety Committee of Tower Hamlets and now in his capacity as Head of Health & Safety for Juniper Ventures. What has been brilliant about the service that Stuart has provided has been his quick and supportive response to any queries and his comprehensive knowledge of health & safety. He provides very detailed documentation to cover any event. Stuart has always been willing to do a site visit or discuss over the phone if time or circumstances do not allow for this. Equally, he returns emails swiftly. I am happy to recommend his service.”
