So exam season is in full swing and we’re racing towards the end of yet another school year already. Scary, isn’t it, how quickly time goes? Students and teachers will no doubt be looking forward to some well-earned rest over the Summer holidays; but for head teachers, the work doesn’t stop there.
The school year-end and Summer holidays is a chance for education leaders and school head teachers to reflect on the past year and review their school’s systems and procedures, making any possible improvements in operations, and getting thoroughly prepared for the new school year ahead.
This is the ideal time to consider whether your current telephone system is still working for you as a busy education provider. Ask yourself: Can our phone system cope with fluctuations in demand – for example, when several parents are calling in at the beginning of a school day? Does it allow us to quickly add messages with key information – for example, when the weather turns bad – so that anyone ringing knows whether or not the school is going to be open? Would we be ready and able to communicate if the school were to go into lockdown as the result of a terror or lone attack? And, with staff spread across multiple buildings, does our current phone system make it easy to locate and contact them? If the answer is no to any of these questions then it may be time to change.
We’re living in an age when communication has never been more integral to our daily lives, so having an efficient, reliable and and fit-for-purpose phone system is absolutely crucial to the smooth running of your school. What was top of the range a few years ago may now be creaking at the seams as your school or education facility develops and evolves.
