Our expert IT services can be tailored to support both teachers and students, drive efficiencies in school management and improve educational processes.
Sovereign is a business solutions provider with expert knowledge of technology and all the benefits IT can bring.
In the education sector, we tailor our services and solutions to improve learning practises for pupils and lighten the administrative task load for teaching staff.
Our aim is to help improve pupil attainment using technological innovation such as device enabled learning, while ensuring safe internet use. For the wider school environment, we introduce technology to ease the burden of essential administration, allowing teachers to spend more time fully engaged with their students.
Pupil Premium Grant
We utilise techniques that have proved so successful in business to ensure your investment of the Pupil Premium grant achieves maximum potential benefits for your school. Initial consultations determine the most effective use of ICT, both as staff support and as a personalised learning tool. As your IT partner we'll ensure your Pupil Premium is wisely spent on solutions designed to close the learning gap for pupils with special educational needs, while improving the efficiency of day to day management processes across the whole school environment.
e-Safety for Pupils
Ensuring the safety of pupils online is one of the biggest challenges facing schools today. With our ever increasing reliance on the Internet, ensuring pupils are protected from malicious activity is a responsibility shared by all school staff, not just the ICT manager. We will work with you to create a sound security policy that covers all key areas of online safety including the effective monitoring of pupil communication, something Ofsted is increasingly keen to see evidenced.
Device Enabled Learning
Whether you're considering a potential Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy for pupils or investing in your own school tablets, we can help you understand ways in which IT can help you deliver lessons both in and outside of the classroom. Does your school have a fast enough Internet connection? Is the Wi-fi able to cope with the number of devices at the school? What apps will be used to deliver lesson plans? We can help you navigate all considerations in order to determine exactly which changes should be made to the existing infrastructure, before we help you create a plan that ensures your device enabled learning policy is successful.
School Data Collaboration
From file sharing through Google Docs or Office 365 to online inter-school collaboration, our technical consultants will offer planning and support advice to make your vision a reality.
The CSR and Efficient Solutions
We always strive to provide solutions that not only make a positive difference to an organisation but that also deliver real value for money. Efficient allocation of funds is a constant concern for schools, never more so since the Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) in 2010 slashed education sector budgets to new, even more challenging levels. We will work with you to create solutions or services that ensure you get the most from your IT, driving efficiencies and cost savings beyond today's challenges and into the future.
