What supply teachers & teaching assistants say about 4myschools

An excellent agency to work for. I have felt listened to and have received a job that is well suited to me. Highly recommended.
I have been with this agency about 3 weeks now and Katie Joyce is absolutely amazing! Placed me straight away helped me with all forms and spent time explaining everything for me! Would 100% recommend!
I am a newly qualified teacher. Having trained in secondary, but wanting to go into primary settings, Paul at 4MySchools has been brilliant at finding me supply placements that fit around my diary and family commitments. So far, it has been nothing but a happy experience with 4MySchools, and I am looking forward to working more after the summer holidays!
Very professional and supportive service. Can highly recommend.
Working for 4myschools continues to be a very positive experience.All of the staff are professional, knowledgeable and supportive. I trust the staff to liaise with,, and place me in, appropriate schools.
I've been working with 4myschools since October last year and I cannot express how happy I am to be working for this agency. There is always constant work. Paul has been brilliant throughout the whole process and was always happy to help during the sign up phase. I had taken a break from teaching and was not sure if I would be able to get back into it, but listening to Paul's advice he really understood and guided me through it. So if you are thinking about getting into working in a school then you should 100% get in contact.
I am so delighted to have found 4myschools having recently relocated to Norfolk. I made contact on-line late on a Friday afternoon and received a call from Paul within the hour. The application process was completed over the weekend and I had an interview on Monday. All pre-employment and safeguarding checks were completed by Tuesday and I was working on Wednesday. It was very reassuring to be working with such a professional team who took me through the process so efficiently. I love using the app because it provides a convenient means of communication that allows me to register my availability not only for the weeks ahead but also when things change at short notice. The chat facility is particularly useful for this. The staff at 4myschools are all lovely and it really feels as if they are working hard for the teachers and TAs they have on their books. I can't recommend 4myschools highly enough.
I had a fantastic time with 4myschool! It gave me the chance to teach in all year groups. Paul was a gentleman, while I was part of 4myschools, and incredibly helpful.
A very good and reliable agency company!
Jasmin is so supportive and receptive. Really felt 4myschools listened to my needs, and got me back into the classroom 🙂
Fantastic company. Such helpful and supportive staff. They create a wonderful relationship with you and find you great schools to work in and for. Cannot recommend them enough.
I started recently working with 4myschools. The registration process was very straightforward and the communication was excellent. Very friendly and professional team that cares about you. Thank you for the opportunity.
I would highly recommend 4myschools if you’re looking for an agency that is supportive and finds you work quickly based on your specific preferences and needs. The sign up process was very fast and easy. Syvonne from the Suffolk Team has been nothing but supportive and found me a long term placement straight away! She would regularly check in on me and I felt very comfortable reaching out to her if I had concerns or any queries.After a bad experience with another local recruitment agency I wish I had known about 4myschools much sooner. Thank you to the Suffolk Team for all your help!
Reliable and friendly supervisors make 4myschools great to work for. I'm able to work where and when's convenient for me and maintain constructive communication every week. Fantastic employers, I can absolutely recommend them!
The staff have been extremely professional and helpful. When I moved over from Australia they made it easy for me to get registered their with their step by step guidance on what I needed to do. Every staff member I have dealt with have been super friendly and very positive to deal with. They have provided me with plenty of work in schools and and I would strongly recommend working for them.
** Update**I have returned to 4myschools for yet another stint of agency work and I believe this is my 3rd time doing so. It's the only agency I have gone back to and this is because of their ability to actively listen and quickly get what you're looking for. Last time, I came back with a keen interest in working in nurseries - something they didn't really do but they reached out to schools and realised that many needed this type of supply. This time, I'm back for a summer term placement as a teaching assistant.As an agency, I cannot fault the staff. If you want an upbeat, caring company to work for, this is it. I had a difficult end to my most recent work and both Cassie and Katie have been supportive and helped to get me back on my feet. As a company, they just seem to support and care for each other too, knowing that Paul (the person who reached out to me initially) and the team regularly help to manage each other's workloads. I have found the types of schools I have been matched to have been like-minded and I have really enjoyed my placements, as a cover teacher, nursery assistant and teaching assistant.The vetting completed is top notch and reassures the schools that they know they are receiving qualified and relevant individuals who are able to muck in and get on with it. I know, from my own experience, this is not always the case with other agencies. When meeting other 4myschools advocates, they have all been really positive and seem to really enjoy working with them and the schools that 4myschools have chosen to work with.-------An absolutely brilliant agency to work with. I worked with Mandie Miller in Norwich as a supply teacher and interventions TA and she was so good at matching me up with the right schools and has found an equally amazing replacement for me in my current role. Mandie works flexible hours for you to register and communicate with you at a time that is convenient for you. The whole team are always friendly to speak to and 4myschools provide opportunities for CPDs. I was also really impressed with the payroll system, with weekly payslips emailed to you and not having to use an umbrella company unless there is one you are interested in using.I would highly recommend 4myschools to teachers in any stage of their career as an opportunity to explore schools, gain more experience and skills for a variety of key stages. A very organised system through use of an app to help organise when you can or cannot accept work as well.
Friendly and supportive. Would recommend to anyone at the end of career or beginning. First class. Having worked for 4myschools for a year I have found the service amazing Special thanks to Paul.
Gave me work very quickly and consistently!
I relocated to Norfolk during the summer, wanted to take a step back from full time teaching but was apprehensive about doing supply work. 4myschools were amazing. Everyone I have spoken to have been friendly and reassuring. They listened to what I wanted and I am loving the work that they find for me. The app is easy to use and I can change my availability whenever I need to. Wish I had done this years ago.
Great agency - they listen to you and match you up with jobs and schools that meet your needs. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend.
4myschools is an excellent supply agency. Helen has been helpful and supportive, taking my preferences into account when finding me various work placements. Communication is professional and the app makes it easy to indicate your availability for work.
I joined the agency in April 2023 at a time in my career when I wanted an interim leadership post. Paul found me the perfect school to match my skill set and I’m very happy there. The registration and compliancy process was smooth and the communication was excellent.
I have found working with 4MySchools so easy. Plenty of work and great communication from all the team, especially Syvonne. I would 100% working with them if you’re thinking of supply.
Truly wonderful company to work for - the friendly and dedicated staff work hard to find the best arrangement for both agency staff and the school, and show a genuine desire to do so.There are a variety of schools in a variety of locations that work with 4myschools, so agency workers are able to work find the perfect arrangement for them. I would wholeheartedly recommend them as an agency.
My experience with 4myschools have been very positive. Everyone there is very friendly, professional and helpful. They work with very good schools and always take care of you.I highly recommend this company!
I've been working with 4myschools since February 2018 and they've been fantastic - I haven't needed another agency during this time as they've been able to keep me in a steady stream of work when I've wanted it. They've listened to my ever changing needs and found a range of placements - daily, short and long term, part and full time - that have fitted around my family life and given me much needed flexibility. The team are always friendly, professional and supportive. All agencies should aspire to be like 4myschools!
By far the best agency I have worked with. Helen was kind enough to find me a job in a few days. They are very professional and very kind when it comes to dealing with their clients. I highly recommend working with them. Special thanks to Helen for her input and hard work that she has put in.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
4myschools has a professional and super efficient team. I have worked for (with) them for about 6 months now and never been without assignment, unless I decided that I wanted to take a break. I love the flexibility; having a toddler, this is what I need. I can’t speak for all the schools they work with, but the ones I have experience with have welcoming and encouraging staff and friendly environment. This agency is a great choice for anyone that wants variety and flexibility in their work life.
I have been with 4ms for about 6 years and have always found them to be very professional and friendly and they seem to have lots of work in nice schools around Norfolk. 4ms have been very helpful over the years when situations have arisen and they have been really supportive in my personal and professional life. Thanks 4ms for all your help.
I phoned 4myschools for some advice on how to get into working within the education sector. I was transferred to Bryony, who was very informative and welcoming on the phone. Within a couple of weeks I had my first posting as a learning support assistant. Everyone I have spoke to at 4myschools have been so helpful and kind, I would highly recommend this agency if anyone is looking to get into the education sector.
As someone who was not entirely sure what to expect of working in supply, I have to say that I have been blown away by the ease and supportive structure which I've encountered with 4myschools. They have been uber organised and supportive with getting me up and running, and not only has there been a steady flow of work in a variety of schools - all very clearly communicated - but I've been excited with the additional opportunities which they have readily presented me with based on my own credentials and experiences. The app is a brilliant system, and it really helps me feel both in tune with what's going on and sufficiently in control. A particular shout-out to Paul on the Norfolk desk who has very rapidly started to feel like an everyday work buddy!
4MySchools are excellent, I’ve been with them for a few years and my experience has been incredible. Thank you!
Professional and committed staff. Always on the ball, chasing me up when I need to be!, and found me a great role. Overall impressed by 4myschools.
4myschools has been really helpful in organising supply teaching work for me. The registration process is very straightforward and highly professional. All the members of staff are approachable, open and clear in their communication, and do their very best to find you relevant placements.
4myschools is a great agency to work for. Helen has been professional, friendly and supportive in helping me find work. The app is very easy to use in selecting availability and being sent job offers. I would highly recommend.
Since joining 4 My Schools as a supply teacher I have had work offers every day. The updatedge app is easy to use to update your availability and see when you have offers confirmed etc. The staff are very helpful and friendly and listen to your preferences when matching you with schools. I would definately reccommend 4 My Schools.
Bryony at 4myschools has been so supportive. I signed up quickly and the whole process was very quick and professional. I have been offered work for when I have asked for and the app makes organising supply days so much easier. The agency has good relationships with their schools with great communication.
I have just begun to use the agency but am more than happy with my experience so far. Signing up was a smooth process and I feel like my contact has taken the time to get to know me and what I am looking for. Bookings have been straight-forward and using the app (and not having to fill in time-sheets!) makes for a stress-free service!! A firm recommendation from me!!
I would like to highly recommend 4myschools!I had the pleasure of working with Bryony. She is a wonderful person, full of empathy. She listened to my values, which is important to me in finding a new job. She believed in me and my skills and found me my first teaching role in the UK in just 3 days! Thank you!!!
I first joined the company in 2017, and took time off from work. I re-joined the 4Myschool again last year and have found the team very friendly, approachable, helpful and understanding, fitting placements to my commitments and family life. They are always professional and supportive and highly recommend the agency for Supply teaching.
I’m an ECT and am newly registered with 4myschools. I have found their service very professional and the staff are friendly and informative. Syvonne guided me through the process of what to expect with supply teaching which made my first day go smoothly. Can highly recommend using them as an agency and I have also met many other teachers who are registered with them and all have said positive things.
I first began working with 4myschools a few months ago, looking to take on some short term supply teaching work. The team were really helpful and enthusiastic throughout the onboarding process, and since then have been great at finding me regular work (thanks, Alan!). I’d highly recommend 4myschools to anyone looking for supply teaching work, I’ve had a really positive experience.
The team at 4myschools are friendly and helpful. I usually deal with Bryony and Helen but just about everyone seems to be committed and efficient. I’m quite fussy about the days I can work and where I want to teach but usually get perfect jobs. Odd days often turn into termly placements, which is ideal for me. My only quibble is the Updatedge app which I cannot like no matter how much I try!
I joined 4Myschools on returning to teaching after many years out of the profession. They were always professional, organised and supportive. Now after nearly 4 years on temporary contracts in a school, I am returning to the agency. I wouldn’t want to work for any other agency as they are friendly and work hard to try and ensure I get as much work in schools as I want. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.
Very friendly staff!! I’d never worked in schools before this agency. And Bryony definitely made me feel more confident and happy about going into school. I can defiantly say I would like to be a learning support assistant full time now. Just need to look for a permanent position.
In 2020, I immigrated from South Africa to the UK and was looking for work as a teacher. I had 14 years teaching experience in SA and was desperate to find a teaching job in the UK. When I signed up with 4myschools, the work just kept flying in. I am so grateful to Bryony and her team for the amazing service! Bruins is always willing to go the extra mile and makes sure that I am financially looked after at every school I have been at!Thanks team! You are truly amazing! 🤩
I started with the agency a few months ago, being in between teaching jobs. I have been in the profession over 8 years and have highly valued the company's flexibility, communication and understanding. The schools they partner with are great and Paul and the team could not have done anything more to make my experience more comfortable.Would highly recommend, thanks for being there during a time of transition!
I’ve been registered with 4myschools for just over a month now, and I can’t express enough how enjoyable and stress-free it’s been!I have mainly worked with Katie and Paul, they are so understanding, friendly and professional.I didn’t have any prior experience working in schools before joining 4myschools, but they took me on and now I have 3 weeks volunteering experience and have just been offered my first paid work as a TA!Overall it’s been a very positive experience 🙂
I started working with 4myschools around three months ago. Since the start I have been impressed, with a smooth and straight forwards signup process and being found work quickly to suit my needs.The App is great way to balance my time between my two jobs, and the staff are friendly and helpful when I have questions. I would definitely recommend using them.
I started with the agency in September and have been really impressed. The signing up process was smooth and quick. The whole system for showing availability and accepting jobs is very easy. Keeping track of where and when you have worked is all automatically done for you so there is no messing around with time-sheets. The staff are very friendly, professional and approachable and they take the time to get to know what you need as a supply teacher. I am so pleased I chose 4myschools.
My experience with 4my schools has been always positive. They only offered good schools to me and were really helpful. Special thanks to Bryony. She is amazing, understanding and always there to support. I highly recommend this company!
I started working with the agency in January and was really impressed with how swiftly my work assignment was put in place. Katie was really efficient and helped me get everything sorted so I could start work quickly with all the right paperwork and training.
I would highly recommend working with 4myschools. They are incredibly friendly and supportive, and found me work immediately at a school that was perfect for me.
I joined 4myschools a year ago and have found the support and communication from Bryony to be excellent. The whole team provide a friendly and professional service and Updatedge is super. They work with excellent schools and always listen to your feedback. I totally recommend registering with 4myschools, you won’t regret it!
I have been working with 4myschools for 2 years now and have never looked back! They are a great agency, very attentive and helpful and always find the right role for me. They work with good quality schools and I feel supported by the agency. Friendly staff and happy to help. Keeping track of where I have worked is great with the UpdateEdge all, so I don't have to do timesheets or keep track of this myself. I'd recommend them to anyone. Thanks!
Having dipped my toes back in to the world of teaching this Summer Term - after a 3 year break. Helen, Jasmine and the whole 4myschools team couldn't have been any more supportive and I have really appreciated their help. They have proven to be a very well connected and organised supply agency. I would/will recommend them. Tom
Interview process was clear and straight forward. Office staff were extremely helpful at all times. I was placed as a Teaching Assistant with hours and days that suited myself amd fitted in around child care. I really enjoyed my placement and working with 4myschools would throughly recommend.
I started working with 4myschools in September. The signing up process was very straightforward and the staff member who recruited me, listened closely to my preferences. The app used for sharing availability and booking supply work is very effective and allows for flexibility. Thank you, 4myschools. Can highly recommend!
Fantastic company to work with. Have worked continuously since starting with 4myschools.
Wonderfully straightforward service. The speediest registration process, no annoying back-and-forth on paperwork, and the consultant is knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
4myschools have been a professional, helpful agency and a reliable employer this last year. Would recommended highly to those seeking a job in education.
Very friendly and professional staff. Excellent communication. They really listen and respond to your needs. Jasmine found me my dream job! Just like that! Thank you 4myschools ☺️
I joined 4myschools in February 2023 and have been really impressed. The process was straightforward and experienced staff were there every step of the way to guide me through the process. As soon as I registered, I began to receive offers of work. So far, I have never had less than atleast a days notice of work- which works really well for my family.I have found all the staff to be friendly and approachable. When I have arrived at the school, the work has been there ready for me - which is evidence of the good communication between the agency and the school hiring me.I would certainly recommend 4myschools to any other teacher that is thinking of giving supply a try.I feel that my preferences are listened to and I have never feel under any pressure to accept jobs that I don't want to do.In summary, lovely people, highly professional and a great work life balance for the teacher. Would particularly sing out the praises of Syvonne who really looks after her teachers.
I have worked for 4myschools as a supply teacher for the past year. This has allowed me to have the flexibility that I was looking for and has given me the opportunity to choose when to work. The staff have always very helpful and supportive, Syvonne especially.
I have recently joined the 4myschools agency and the signing up process was simple and quick with lots of support if needed. I have already received a long term offer at a school. Donna and Jasmine have been particularly helpful at finding me jobs that meet my preferences.
Syvonne is so great to work with - always diligent, careful and kind. I've had lots of work through 4myschools, and I really enjoy working with all of the staff, plus their wonderful help and advice as I ventured into the work of supply teaching.
Such a helpful company, supported me and guided me to a position I am now very happy in. Can’t say enough positive feedback for everyone involved
Have a very good experience with 4myschools. Everyone I talked to was quite helpful and supportive. They catered my every problem skillfully and were quite professional. Highly recommended!
Absolutely love working for 4myschools. The team are lovely and Katie is amazing, we have a good work relationship. Would 100% recommend.
Enjoying working for this considerate, dynamic company. They listen to their teachers to find the right job for them. I’ve worked for lots of great schools through them over the last year. Would highly recommend them.
I joined 4myschools 2 years ago after being interviewed by Bryony and Helen, who were both extremely welcoming. They were very helpful in advising me how to tweak my CV and personal statement, and very encouraging, helping to build my confidence after a long break from working in education.Bryony quickly found me a very good placement but continued to check in regularly, making sure I was happy and everything was going well. She has been wonderful to work with and has made everything so easy. That said, everybody at the agency truly work as a team and have been quick to help whenever I had any kind of issue.I give them 10/10 and would recommend 4myschools to anyone looking for education work.
Excellent service and support. Really pleased to work for this excellent agency.
Fantastic agency. They really think of you and your needs and remember them, too. All good placements, very efficient and always there to help. Katie Joyce is an absolute superstar and Paul Matthews is brilliant, too.
If you are thinking about supply I would highly recommend 4myschools. Katie is great at finding you the right setting and very supportive.
A warm and caring supply agency with the perfect balance between pushing you to go for work and respecting when you are busy and don't want to take on an assignment. Highly professional and personable and they make the process of supplying stress free and enjoyable.
This is my first time doing supply work and using an agency and I have been very impressed. Everyone has been extremely professional, friendly and helpful. Communication is timely and Donna does a fantastic job of keeping in touch at all times to make sure everything is going well.
A super agency. Offered plenty of work. Staff listened and responded to my preferences and I worked at some fantastic schools. Thanks to Syvonne, Paul and the rest of a great, supportive team.
4 my schools have been brilliant. In two weeks I have worked virtually every day in 2 schools as a TA. They are efficient, friendly and sensitive to my requirements.
Katie from the Norfolk branch found me work at a school just a five minute drive away , less than a week after I registered! Friendly and approachable staff who obviously have good contacts and relationships with local schools. I would definitely recommend 4myschools.Deborah
Excellent and quick communication as well as support throughout. Had plenty of work for me taking on my individual circumstances as well. They went above and beyond to get me signed on even when I was away abroad.
I joined 4myschools approximately 4 months ago. It took several weeks for my DBS to be approved and the staff were really patient. The team at 4myschools, including Alan and Gemma, are extremely helpful, friendly and approachable, willing to go extra mile to help and knowledgeable in information they provide. They keep me updated by email and telephone with information needed to ensure I can provide an optimal service to the school. I have experienced a superb relationship between agency, school and myself, that has provided flexibility when needed. I would strongly recommend 4myschools to any teacher who wishes to do supply teaching. Dr Lethbridge
Firstly, I'm so lucky that I work with 4myschools.Secondly - For years my teaching diploma was in the drawer only that I changed country thinking it was no longer valid in the UK, but no more after I contacted 4myschools.Finally - If you want to make your dreams come true to work with children, to give them a better future and to support them you definitely need to contact 4myschools and it won't be a disappointment.4myschools thank you!

4myschools is an excellent, caring and highly supportive agency. They work hard at correctly placing staff in schools that match their skill set.I've been with the agency for 9 months and can't imagine working with anyone else.

4my schools has consistently found me work given the specific requirement of just needing Fridays. All communication I have had has been timely, friendly and professional. Their app is extremely easy to use and allows for quick dialogue when necessary. Many thanks Paul and team!
Just signed up with 4myschools and have been very impressed with their efficiency and levels of support. Signing up was easy to do and the staff are kind and helpful.
A great agency to work for .Great at supporting you in finding work in schools!
Brilliant supply agency. Very reassuring when I first signed with them, having not taught in the UK for several years I had many questions, which Paul answered. I always had work when I wanted it and mostly with my preferred age range. I would recommend 4myschools to anyone wanting to supply teach.
I started working with 4myschools around a month ago. So far, I have been impressed with the agency. The staff are really friendly and supportive of whatever your circumstances are. Signing up was straight forward, and I have found the process of booking in work really easy through the use of the app and regular communication with the agency. I have had plenty of work so far. I would recommend working with 4myschools.
4myschools is a superb company to work with. Every step of the way, they were flawlessly professional in their conduct, finding me work consistently and ultimately helping me find a longer term position in a school I loved working in.
An amazing company, they have been incredibly helpful from start to finish! Helen and Gemma have always been friendly and easy to communicate with.A great experience!
Joining 4mySchools has been as easy transition from mainstream teaching to supply. The team worked hard to ensure I was on the books as quickly as possible and jobs came in straight away. The App is easy to use and makes the process of selecting jobs/days to work easy. highly recommend for anyone wanting to try their hand at supply teaching.
4myschools have been absolutely amazing to work for. They have been so helpful with the signing up process and with everything since then. I have secured a full time position in a primary school since signing up with them, which would have been a much greater task if it wasn't for the help of the amazing staff. Highly recommend this company.
I completely recommend anyone looking for supply opportunities to work with 4myschools. I have worked with them on and off for a number of years and have now secured a permanent position in the school where I have been on long term supply.Paul has always been very patient and accommodating, especially as I was fussy around which days and where I would work!
4myschools is a great company with friendly and professional staff. I have been working with them for around seven years. They have always provided me with regular assignments and support.
