Finding the right product for your school, whether primary or secondary is incredibly difficult. Gone are the days of people turning up in reception asking to see you and showcasing you their offering. Gone too, is the need to have a set of books or a scheme that is only replenished once every five/ten years.
Whilst this enables schools and Heads to adjust to the changing demographic and needs of their particular children it also makes it incredibly time consuming and challenging. How do you choose the right product for the right school? The choice out there of, for example, curriculum materials for KS1 and KS2 is large- which is great - however it does make it difficult for you as a school leader.
Word of mouth recommendations from fellow Heads and School leaders in other schools can help - as of course can internet research. Visiting exhibitions such as BETT are also a great way to see what is out there. However this takes time and money - which schools are short of. In boxes can often be over run with emails about the new latest product - and even if you've identified an educational resource that will work for your school - how do you find out the price, and crucially the onboarding process.
We speak to many school leaders who say they are reticent to learn more about education resources and solutions as they don't want, after asking one question, to be bombarded with emails and calls. This is where our supplier showcases can really help. Each presentation lasts only 13 minutes - long enough to learn more than you would from internet research - and not so long to give you the detail you don't need if its not right for your school! Plus the other added bonus is your details are not shared with any of the companies unless you give permission at the end of the evening.
This is a great way to source education resources for your primary school as a school leader, whether you are looking for KS1, KS2 or KS3 or indeed EYFS - we showcase a range of products - from maths to literacy to PSHE to specific subject resources. Why not sign up to one of our events - or if you are looking for a specific solution please do drop us an email. We take no commission from companies - and only signpost you to companies that we know, as our Heads have told us, that offer high quality solutions to your school problems. So if you are looking for a primary school resource, whether it be a maths solution, Literacy, IT or something completely different please do drop us an email and we will do our best to put you directly in touch with someone who can help.
