What is the Schools’ Buying Strategy?

The Department for Education (DfE)  Schools’ Buying Strategy has been launched. The aim is to enable schools to save money on non-staff costs. The DfE schools’ buying strategy includes measures such as: • giving schools access to national deals, which can save them up to 10% on their energy spend and over 40% on the cost of printers, photocopiers, IT equipment and services; • piloting regional buying hubs to support local schools with services like catering and cleaning, and to buy collectively to save cash; • developing a digital platform and tools to enable schools to compare suppliers and get the best prices.

Education is expensive and always will be. Schools have had to make cuts in spending and stretch school budgets to provide for the needs of their pupils.One way to save money is to look after existing school resources and to try and make then last longer. This means taking good care of assets – and making sure that they do not go missing. The need for asset management and responsibility comes into play!

Here at Asset Labels for Schools we support the DfE with their aims to free up the way schools choose to spend their money, to protect schools from inefficient spending, reduce school leaders’ workload so in turn, enable school leaders to focus on leading teaching and learning. We understand that all schools need to spend wisely and that’s why we always offer great value for money.

Buy Direct – and save money

Schools make choices, they read reviews from other schools and choose to buy direct from us. The freedom to buy direct from the manufacturer saves schools money. There is no re-seller to pay. Large academies and school- groups make large savings by placing larger orders with us.

Every order is important to us and we will endeavour to give the best price possible.

Business is booming! Demand is high for school asset labels. Our excellent reviews show that we never produce inferior labels. Our labels are manufactured in Somerset by a local workforce and are designed to stand the test of time. We only use high quality materials, inks and adhesives.

With on-going investment in new printing machinery, we have supplied many hundreds of UK nurseries, schools, independent schools, academies, colleges and universities with asset barcode labels for 21 years.

We also print ‘property of…’ labels, sequential numbered stickers and QR coded labels, plus a huge range of industrial labels manufactured by our parent company, Custom Labels.
