Frequently Asked Questions

If I sign up for a free trial, will you make it difficult for us to opt out when the trial period is over?

Absolutely not. We think you'll love our site and the resources, but once your trial is over you'll have to opt in to a subscription.

Once you have my email address, will you sell my details / spam me with pointless emails / try and sell me a timeshare in Spain?

No. No tricks here. You'll get emails with useful tips throughout your trial, and weekly SMSC updates. You can opt out of these at any time. We'll never sell your details, and we don't own any timeshares. You get enough junk mail. We won't add to it.

Isn't £199 too cheap? Does that reflect on the quality of the site?

School budgets are tight.
£199 is roughly the cost of a day's supply, or to put it another way, it works out at around £1 per day to get resources for the whole school for the whole year.

Whilst we are a business, we are also teachers, trying to help reduce workload and improve wellbeing for other teachers. You'll get 28 days to trial the resources before committing anyway, so you can judge the quality for yourself. There's always the option to choose the single-user subscription just for you.

Are there any hidden costs?

No. (Although if you choose to print the workbooks, then you'll have to budget for that. We've got a condensed version of the booklet to keep costs to a minimum. It's roughly 4 sheets of A4 per student each half term. That's it.)

We already have SMSC PowerPoints that we've bought into - why should we swap?

Think back to the last training day you enjoyed. Did it involve someone reading a PowerPoint aloud to you? We doubt it.

Our SMSC resources are either activities or videos (usually TED talks, never from YouTube).
We believe tutors have more important things to do for their tutees than clicking through a powerpoint.

I haven't heard of you before - are you new?

We launched back in January at the BETT show, so yes, we're pretty new still. We have over 30 years teaching experience between us, so you can trust that we know what we are talking about.

What's with the name?

We started out designing a homepage specifically for schools, hence 'Home4Schools'.
That's why the main page has a google searchbar, a Word of the Day, and the news headlines. They're all things we think would be of benefit for students to see whenever they open a new browser window.
The homepage is free to use, whether you subscribe to the rest of the site or not.

Where does your Word of the Day come from?

We made it. Having looked everywhere for a WOTD feed that was suitable for students, we concluded that none exist. The ones we found had words like 'crepuscular' and 'verisimilitude', and that just seemed silly to put in front of teenagers who already have their own language half the time (like when bae starts throwing shade at your fam coz she's salty you've been playing Fortnite.)

How do I persuade my line manager to pay for this?

It's a no-brainer, but on the off-chance your line manager doesn't have one, show them the site, invite them to talk to students, get them involved in the debate topic, etc. We'll give you some tips and tools during your trial to help you out with this.

Don't just take our word for it...

Home4Schools is a really simple, easy way to provide useful activities and relevant discussion for tutorial sessions without needing to dedicate a lot of time to preparing resources.

We've really enjoyed using it this year, with some brilliant debates taking place and lot of genuine competition between students on the literacy and numeracy activities!

It'll continue to be a key piece of our tutorial and PSHE framework for next year.

Richard Wood, Claremont High School

Home4Schools has proven an invaluable resource for form time.
As a Head of Year, I have found that both staff and students have enjoyed the resources, and the site couldn't be easier to use.
Much better than the SMSC PowerPoints we've endured before!

Jules Houghton-Wood, Stanground Academy

Home 4 Schools has helped us to streamline our tutorial sessions. Students are engaged and interested, and they always enjoy the debates!

We have used Home4Schools in both small group and whole class exercises. The website is easy to navigate and the pre-printed workbook allows staff to pick up the resources and pick out activities that engage their class the most.

It has reduced my personal workload as having a term ready in one book means I am always planned for when I have a tutorial. Cover supervisors have found Home4Schools a useful tool as the stimulus presented can be built upon to form a whole lesson during teacher absences.

Numeracy, literacy, problem solving and being able to form and put forward an opinion are skills that are always in need of development, particularly with our SEN learners. The use of today's news gives a valuable opportunity to explore students' world views and understanding. I have seen classes work through from opposing viewpoints to a conclusive consensus and this is just marvellous!

Emily is always on hand to help and responds promptly to feedback and suggestions. Undoubtedly the most valuable business card I've ever picked up at Bett.
