Caroline

Suffolk Primary Teacher

Over the last two years I’ve had several occasions whereby I’ve needed to supply; I’ve only ever done this with 4myschools for many reasons. Everyone I’ve spoken to, met or had any contact with at 4myschools have been outstanding in the way they’ve supported me during this period. From the genuine interest in my skills during the conversations when registering, to the understanding and acceptance when offering and declining work, through to kind hearted advice and support whilst I’ve juggled personal life problems. All of these mean I have always been left feeling appreciated, valued and wanted as both a person and supply teacher. This human approach to a business is so rare in the modern world, yet to have been able to work alongside one has made me feel even more proud of the role I’ve played in what has been a challenging time in education. The company will continue to hold a significant place in my life for all of this.

Great staff – very supportive; sensitive; flexible – & always there when you need to change anything at short notice. Your staff also use their considerable experience to support you in situations where a host school offers little support to you as a Supply Teacher or places you in a vulnerable/unsafe situation – which can occasionally happen.

Adele

I want to say a huge Thank you for putting me on my career path. Within 8 months I’ve gone from a learning support assistant to passing my TA course, to becoming a SEN 1:1, classroom assistant & now a full time TA. 

So Thank you for giving me that opportunity. I’ll forever be grateful. 

Cheyenne

100% an outstanding agency with very friendly and caring staff. Highly recommended!!!

Patricia

MFL Teacher Hertfordshire

Thank you again for deciding to furlough us all a second time. I have been having to sort out our mortgage for moving house and had to prove my income for the year etc. Without my furlough pay I would never have been able to have my income accepted and we wouldn’t be able to get the house that we are now in. I think sometimes we don’t always fully appreciate the decisions we make and all the long term impacts they can have on others lives. This one of 4myschools will have  such a huge positive impact on mine and my families

Vicky

Secondary Teacher Suffolk

I’ve been with 4myschools for three years now and I have been extremely happy with the service they provide. I always get the amount of work I want and always feel supported by Helen Darling and all the other members of 4myschools team.

Vickie

I would really recommend joining 4myschools, the staff have been really helpful and fast in processing my application and finding me a suitable placement. Support has been great and staff are always there to help with questions.

Jake

Primary Teacher Essex

I have been with 4myschools for over 5 years now and am very happy with them. Everyone makes you feel like they know you and are happy to have a chat. They always take time to get to know you and your needs and preferences and as a result, I’ve always had as much work as I ask for, even during lockdown with online learning!”

I am given regular work, provided with accurate information about the schools and I’m always confident they have negotiated the best rate possible for me. Recently scored 10/10 in a feedback survey

Caroline

Secondary English Teacher Essex and Hertfordshire

4myschools have been excellent to work with for the past six months. All their recruitment agents are incredibly hard working and proactive, consistently finding me work week after week. Initially I signed on with several agencies but quickly ended up telling those I was unavailable due to receiving such regular shifts through 4myschools. Even during lockdown when schools were closed to most pupils, 4my schools managed to find me shifts covering classes with children still attending. This was much appreciated due to difficulties with finance and stability around the time of first lockdown. Updatedge their availability app makes it easy to communicate with both the agency and schools, allowing you to personalise your own work schedule. I never felt pressured to work or guilted into accepting shifts I didn’t want by the agents in the way I felt other companies had tried to do. The recruitment consultants are empathetic to the life of a supply teacher, and sensitive to the fact that we have lives outside of teaching too. I always feel the agency has my best interests at heart, particularly when they negotiate with schools to secure the best rate of pay, rather than accepting the first offer they receive. I have been lucky enough to secure a long-term supply post working three days a week, which is exactly what I wanted, and I could not have done it without 4myschools and their brilliant staff. Thank you.

Dominic

Primary KS2 Teacher Norfolk

4myschools registration was an easy process, everyone I have spoken to are pleasant and helpful. I am happy to have joined 4myschools.  I would recommend 4myschools registartion process to a friend or colleague and scored them 10/10 in a recent survey

Charlotte

Primary KS1 & KS2 Teacher Essex

4myschools have sent a great variety of day to day supply my way. 4myschools have also tried to ensure that I have worked for a limited number of schools over the ‘covid  period’ to help lessen the chance of catching or spreading covid.

Helen has made regular contact with me while I was in a longer term placement and has been very supportive as I learned new skills in home learning.

Helen is always efficient and supportive.

Susan

Primary KS1 & KS2 Teacher Essex

I find the working environment extremely friendly and welcoming. All staff members are easy to talk with and they always treat you with kindness and patience. I would most likely recommend it to a friend as I am so far having a great experience myself.

Anita

Teacher

4myschools are professional, supportive and enthusiastic which made the process efficient and stress free.

Lynn

Teacher

Excellent communication regarding job vacancies.
Advance notice of vacancies when possible.
No pressure when I decided to not continue with an assignment that I felt was not working out .
Willing to listen to my needs and requests re assignments.
Worked so hard to have staff furloughed. As a result I was able to make more generous donations to charities.
Agency supports a charity: ‘Water’.

Peggy

Teacher

As an experienced supply teacher, I would highly recommend 4myschools for their conscientious approach – including:
* A thorough interview in terms of qualifications, experience etc
* Care & personal attention given to you as a person rather than just another placement opportunity
* A range of diverse placement offers on a regular basis
* Placement feedback is always discussed and noted
* 4myschools have recently made an exceptional & dilligent effort to secure furlough payments for each & every one of their registered teachers – underpinned by email updates at every step of the process.

David

Teacher

I really like the fact that every day I work with 4myschools, people who need it are getting drinking water. I think the whole ethos of giving back is really positive and reflects in the work you do. Staff have always been professional, friendly and honest about the work offered, trying to match the jobs to my needs. Pay has always been fair and I have really felt 4myschools try to meet the needs of schools and teachers working for them.

Stephanie

Teacher

Excellent contact and account management. Feeling of belonging to a team without being too fussed over. The theme of people being the most important resource is not just a trite soundbite, it is demonstrably practised!
Thank you.

Stuart

Teacher

Every member of staff that I have spoken to have been fully supportive of any questions that I may have. They take the time to discuss any issues both at this very different time but before this also. I have been fortunate enough to continue working throughout the lockdown & members of staff have been checking in on me. Paul Yates called yesterday to check that I was ok and we were able to have little laugh, which is always good. I feel valued by the company and the school. I am very lucky and have recommended you already! Xxx

Sally D

Teacher

Excellent supply agency. I have been with them for over eleven years and have never felt the need to register with any other agency….I would recommend them without any hesitation at all.

Paul

Teacher

Covid 19 and the way 4myschools quickly handled the situation by contacting us by email and also by speaking on the phone makes the big difference.

I will gladly recommend 4myschools to other colleagues and tell them the story behind the help we got and the checking on us.
