Thursday 12 November saw the market launch of the Integra Schools brand at Mecure Bristol North, The Grange Hotel in South Gloucestershire. The launch introduced the new brand for the trading arm of South Gloucestershire Council and showcased the services that Integra Schools and council departments provide to schools

Over the last few months Integra Schools have been engaging with schools to find out what they think about the services we provide and how they would like to work with us going forwards. This feedback has been used to enhance and reinvigorate the service offers so that they meet the current needs of schools. We are confident that the offer we presented delivers on school priorities and represents exceptional value for money.

210 representatives from academies, primary, special and secondary schools attended throughout the day to browse the stands and discuss the new service offers. We were pleased to welcome headteachers, senior leaders, bursars and governors to find out more about the benefits of our services. All Integra Schools services were represented by two service experts to provide information and answer questions about their service. Feedback about the event has been really positive.

All of the services have been outlined on this website and in further detail on our Service Directory eDoc which were also launched at the event.

Following the event all the attending school representatives received a spreadsheet outlining their own costs so that schools can engage senior leaders, bursars and governors in detailed discussions about the services they need.

Schools are being asked to sign up to services by December 31 and the new service offers will start on 1 April 2016.

Integra Schools are currently following up queries raised by schools and have allocated senior staff as school Account Managers to provide a more responsive and co-ordinated approach to working with you.

Integra Schools branding will be replacing the former branding of South Gloucestershire Traded Services over the next few months. We look forward to rebranding CPD online and our subscriber websites in time for the new services being delivered in April 2016.
