Customer Stories

“Thank you, I am very grateful to you for this. I used the document with my online governors meeting and it gave a good framework to plan through. I’d also added notes where we sectioned things and what we had done so made me feel better seeing what we had already put in place.”

Welcome to SchoolPro TLC

At SchoolPro TLC we are dedicated to making a difference to the lives of children and school staff both locally and nationally. We work in partnership with schools, academy trusts and local authorities to provide specialist expertise in a variety of areas, ensuring:

Educators are provided with expert guidance

At SchoolPro TLC, all of our team are experienced teachers, school leaders, governors and/or inspectors who have worked across a range of education contexts and age groups, from Primary through to Further Education. We will bring this experience and expertise to work with you to increase capacity and provide the support that you need, in the way you need and in the timeframe that you need.

Every child receives a good education

We fundamentally believe that every child deserves the best education and that quality education improves the life chances of young people. By providing you with the leadership support you require, we will allow the staff that you have to be able to do what they do best and continue to provide your pupils with the best education possible.

Tailored packages enable schools and children to reach their full potential

Our packages are designed to meet the needs of your school and your school community. Whether it is curriculum planning, timetabling, leadership and management, school improvement, data protection, or governance, we will ensure that the service you receive meets your exact requirements. We work with a range of education establishments from small village primary schools to large inner city secondaries and colleges, and we ensure that our bespoke packages suit your needs and budget.

Saving schools money…

We know that budgets are tight in schools and being cost effective in every financial decision you make is essential.  We ensure that all of our services provide you with a cost-effective solution allowing you to channel more money into areas of your school or Trust that directly impact your children.

As an example, our DPO service is cost-neutral compared to other, alternative solutions. To appoint an internal DPO, schools need to finance training for that individual, arrange and organise time to complete training, allocate time to complete the role effectively, and provide a financial incentive. Our experience, knowledge base, and economies of scale due to working with hundreds of schools, allow us to dramatically cut down these costs.

A school senior leader earning £50k p.a. who is given an hour a week across the year to complete their DPO work, is costing a school at least £2k p.a. which is less than our most expensive rate. The average cost of our DPO service when compared to other similar services, saves our schools an average of £1.3k p.a.

More time to focus…

Running a school is an extremely demanding job.  As former school senior leaders, we are fully aware of the myriad distractions to your attention and the challenges of finding time to get important work done.  The experience and expertise of our team will free up time for you to focus on the people that truly matter in your organization. 

Whilst the services we provide are essential for the effective running of your school, we know that they can take up a disproportionate amount of your time. Speak to us about how we can take on these roles for you and give you that time back.

Fully supported…

Knowing who to turn to when you have questions or need assistance is crucial, and being able to rely on that support is just as critical. Depending on the service you are looking for, our specialists can support you onsite as you need it, and can also supply remote offsite support throughout the year.

We are available via phone, email, video conference, and social media platforms as well as our own bespoke software portal (for DPO services).

We are able to provide support both during term-time and during school holidays. We are also able to be flexible with our working routines and be on hand in an emergency outside of the normal working week.

Business Management

Efficient school business management is widely recognised as an integral part of helping schools make the best use of their resources to support effective teaching and learning of pupils, consequently enabling head teachers and other leaders to focus on leading that teaching and learning. See what our School Business Manager (SBM) services will offer you.

Governance

The role of governing bodies is a demanding one with ever higher expectations. Our Governance support packages help raise achievement and standards through the processes of monitoring, challenge, support and intervention. We will help you with any aspect of school governance, especially duties and accountability. See how these services can benefit you and your organisation.

 

Timetabling

This service gives you time for complete focus on teaching, learning and provision across all areas of your leadership and support teams. We will carry out a review of your curriculum and staffing, and design your curriculum model for use in your management system. We will then consult with senior and middle leaders to complete a full design brief. See how we do it.
