Set Up

We work with you to plan your system and set it up to match your requirements, e.g. recreating lesson observation forms, determining check-in dates, agree your strategic goals and outcomes, etc. This is done in an session which usually lasts around an hour. We then aim to have you up and running within one working day.

Training

We currently provide an optional demonstration of the product at sign up by our Customer Engagement Team as part of the onboarding process. To improve customer experience, we are also looking to load page-specific videos on to each main page which will show the user around any time in about 30-60 seconds.

As a school we previously subscribed to a competitor. The depth of information and guidance that you have readily available to schools is exemplary. The annual subscription is worth every penny.

Ann-Marie found TheSchoolBus:
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Having ready made policies and information provides me with more time for teaching as well as ensuring that my staff have up to date information which also improves their efficiency.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Rhe 7 minute reads are a game-changer
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Hi prostate advice and guidance on the ever changing school climate with regards to Covid.
  • Significantly saves school money
    With template policies available this saves me both time and money as I simply have to adapt them to meet with our schools own visions and values.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Policies and information is regularly reviewed and updated; the alerts to changes ensure that I can update staff in a timely and efficient manner.

The School Bus provides excellent value for money. The time saved in producing policies, presentations and risk assessments has paid for the subscription many times over.

Liz Bishopp found TheSchoolBus:
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    This is difficult to answer as I'm not sure to what extent my teaching colleagues are delving into the system. From my experience of the positive impact on other areas, I think there is probably significant potential to improve teaching efficiency.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Ease of policy compliance, easy reference to policies, risk assessments, etc.
  • Moderately improves teacher knowledge and skills
    The ability to receive updates automatically saves time in researching areas of interest.
  • Significantly saves school money
    Being able to have a 'go to' resource rather than several subscriptions provides excellent value for money.
  • Significantly improves school processes
    Policy compliance, the ability to ask for documents, policies, risk assessments etc to be produced all saves a significant amount of time.
