Reduce your supply teacher costs AND create a healthier school!

Staff sickness is a major issue for any school and, with the average daily charge to schools for a supply teacher being as much as £100 higher than the daily pay rate for the absent teacher, costs can escalate quickly! For example, it cost one school in Birmingham more than £500,000 to cover staff absences and fourteen schools in Birmingham each spent more than £200,000 on supply teachers.

This is why its more important than ever to reduce the spread of persistent infections like colds, flu and stomach bugs within the school environment to keep staff fit and healthy. Schools are now turning to technology to help in the fight, with many installing the new Pure Hold Hygiene Handles . A door handle that releases sanitizing hand gel onto the users hand as they open the door and proven to effectively clean hands.

The Pure Hold Hygiene Handles are proven to be 98.5% cleaner than a standard door handle and users of the system that were tested at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth were shown to achieve 87.5% cleaner hands than those that didn't use the system. The gel is highly effective and has been proven to kill murine norovirus and achieve similar results to hand washing. Actions like this help to ensure that students remain healthy throughout the year, with minimal disruption to their studies.

A SUPPLY TEACHER COSTS ABOUT THE SAME FOR 1 DAY AS A PURE HOLD HYGIENE HANDLE FOR A WHOLE YEAR SO A REDUCTION IN INFECTIONS IS MORE THAN LIKELY TO SAVE YOU MONEY OVER THE COURSE A YEAR.

Not only that, but using supply teachers can often have a negative impact on students because the supply teacher is not familiar with each childs ability - therefore reducing their ability to help students with their studies effectively. Implementing the Pure Hold Hygiene Handle is likely to reduce your supply teacher costs AND create a healthier school for everyone!
