I began my new role as Head teacher in January 2017. Very soon I realised that we needed an IT provider who would be readily available, understand educational issues and who could provide advice, show an understanding of current changes in a vastly changing culture within education and ensure our hardware systems were operational for effective teaching and learning.
After speaking with the managing director of the company at an initial meeting to determine which provider would suit both my future planning and the developmental needs of the school, I was convinced by Foresight’s commitment towards children’s education; their high levels of accessible technical support and the expertise offered to support the computing curriculum.
Having the knowledge that every technical issue would be addressed as a matter of urgency and support would be provided with the next available technician, gave us the confidence that we had a provider who genuinely cared about our school.
The personal friendly approach and genuine interest in the school, its development for the future and advice to support a 5 year plan has been met with positive response from members of staff including office staff who have found the accessibility of the company invaluable in the time of emergency need. Support has even been given remotely at times of emergency.
Foresight has provided reliability and an extremely high standard level of support and advice unrivalled by any others I have experienced. Their research into latest educational curriculum and hardware to support the application of teaching and learning and keeping up to date with statutory legislation with regards to online safety makes them one of my greatest support providers within school.
I would recommend Foresight to any other educational establishment due to the understanding of the future development of schools and demand in a rapidly changing world of IT ; and to add, their knowledge of security and compliance with the latest data protection requirements supersedes that which was provided before.
I have every confidence that my school will continue to work with Foresight in the foreseeable future and beyond.
They have the ‘Foresight’ to see the future which lies ahead in an educational world.
They are: Friendly, Original Reliable, Established, Specialised, Independent, Generous, Honest and Trustworthy
