    Operating in more than 200 primary, nursery and special needs schools in London, Wauton Samuel has built an established reputation in providing viable solutions that make a real difference, which are tailored to the specific needs of every school and backed-up by exceptional customer support to guide users with every step.

    With a team consisting of former head teachers, school managers and governors, Wauton Samuel understands the challenges that come with leading a school; using their extensive knowledge and expertise across a range of key areas for schools to ‘unlock hidden potential’.

    Primarily, this is where the company’s most sought after solution, P4, comes into play. The easy-to-use system, described by Wauton Samuel’s chairman, David Waugh as a ‘turnkey solution to running your school’, holds the capability to manage all aspects of administration, from logging individual student profiles with information such as attendance, school trips and dinner money; scoring assessments and individual behaviour in the classroom; recording staff information including terms and conditions of employment, DBS records and absence; as well as calculating finances from petty cash to CFR and GAG reporting.

    The flexibility and clarity of P4 have also been reflected by Cath Hawkins of Wyborne Primary School in the London Borough of Greenwich, who switched to the system in order to handle all aspects of school administration: “It was a leap of faith but well worth it in our opinion. Both the product and the company meet our demands for functionality, flexibility, value for money and speed of response.”

    The education software specialist has also appointed Stephen Clarke as the new managing director, who has a wealth of experience with his previous company, Birmingham-based Contact Group and will be responsible for delivering a smooth transition for schools to change to the P4 management system.

    Clarke said of his new post: “I’m excited to join such a dedicated and enthusiastic company that has a clear vision and values. [The previous managing director] has done an outstanding job securing Crown Commercial Supplier status and growing the company, and I intend to build on this to further promote the existing services offered and expand our range using the extensive skills the team here at Wauton Samuel has at its disposal.”
