Help - there are no suitable schools near me!

Press release from: EdProcure

Well, there probably are. You just don’t know how to find them. And your version of suitable and someone else’s version of suitable may just be totally different. Consider these 4 different parents and let’s ask them all the same question about the suitability of the local secondary schools.

Parents 1 – their child is an outstanding learner and keen to embark on a successful career.
There are plenty of suitable schools near me because…our child will adapt to any situation in any school because their primary focus in on learning. They will probably be in the top set for a lot of their studies and so be with like-minded pupils, so in reality, as long as the teaching is good, then any of the schools near me can be branded as satisfactory for our child. They will also study on their own at home so I know they will succeed regardless. We attach greater importance to A-levels and University anyway so the choice of secondary school is not concerning us.

Parents 2 – their child is heavily into sport and is keen to do well in their GCSE’s.
There are plenty of suitable schools near me because…our child is never going to be an outstanding learner with 10 A grade GCSE’s, so we are not prepared to put added pressure on them by insisting they go to the very best school. We are also not of the mind that any school will do, so we are going to involve them in our choice of nearby school safe in the knowledge that they will be happy. As long as they are happy, they will study hard and enjoy their sport and develop a good group of friends. This is the most important consideration for us and means that there are plenty of suitable schools near to where we live.

Parents 3 – their child is intelligent and they are very well off.
There are plenty of suitable schools near me because…we will be sending our child to an independent, fee paying school and we will have a choice of them, so we are not overly concerned about finding the right one. We would assume that the schools are of a good standard and the OFSTED ratings are good, and if we are not content with the school, we will look to move them elsewhere. Whatever the scenario, we are really confident there are plenty of suitable schools near to where we live from which to choose.
Parents 4 – their child has a solid group of friends in their current primary school.

There are plenty of suitable schools near me because…our child will want to follow their friends wherever they go. Even if we don’t think the school is as good as we would like, so long as our child is with their friends and is happy, they will be more likely to study hard for their exams and do well at school. Plus, schools change over time, good ones go bad, and bad ones improve, so we are keeping an open mind based on their 5 years of secondary school, not the next 6 months. So, every school in our area could be considered suitable.

We have tried to take a small selection of pupils and their individual scenarios, if only to prove the point that there is always a suitable option, whether you first think so or not. It is best not to get too concerned about whether there are suitable schools nearby, and instead concentrate on finding the right school for your child. Remember – there are plenty of suitable schools near me!

How to Market to schools
Every year the education budget in the UK is set to over £85billion and successive governments seem very keen on protecting this portion of their budget.

The school procurement process
Schools, like all public sector bodies and larger private sector organisations, conduct their procurement according to budgets. These budgets are set at the top of the organisation’s tree and filtered down to the budget holders who have been given the responsibility to spend this money. Spend being the operative word. School procurement is a little bit like a communist society – spend it or lose it.
