SAM, Staff Absence Management Limited

SAM, our Staff Absence Management online software was developed specifically for schools to help reduce disruption to teaching standards and also help to improve morale and performance. It's not insurance, it's online software that helps you manage, monitor and make decisions in relation to staff absence, reducing admin time and supply costs. 

SAM;

  • automatically tells you when a staff member hits a trigger or when a task is due
  • provides a consistent and fair approach to absence management reducing the potential risk of discrimination claims
  • maintains a complete case management file, helping you keep track of meetings and documents
  • reports on absences by type/employee/terms/years and keeps track of absence trends such as stress, helping to identify issues early
  • reduces supply costs which can be better reinvested elsewhere and can potentially reduce staff absence insurance premiums too

We'd love to show you around SAM so you can see for yourself how easy it is to use and how it could help your school, just email us today to book a demo. Our information pack also contains some of our clients' comments please feel free to contact any of them to ask about how they have benefited from using SAM.

Testimonials

SAM - Ripley St Thomas CE Academy and Managing Director of LASBM

I have recently starting using SAM for managing staff absence and it really does make the whole process much simpler. Instead of having to rely on memory, SAM flags up staff who reach an absence trigger point, which alerts the user to take action. Judgement can then be used to determine how to proceed, in line with our own policies. I particularly value the ability to see individual absence calendars for staff, which enables absence patterns to be identified quickly and easily. The various reports can be used to provide comparisons termly, annually or by absence type, and are extremely useful in providing school leaders with an overview. I would definitely recommend SAM to other schools.Sue Edwards, Ripley St Thomas CE Academy and Managing Director of LASBM

SAM - Hugh Gaitskell Primary School

SAM has completely revolutionised our sickness monitoring procedures.  Our ability to track individuals at every stage through our sickness policy at the click of a button and produce detailed notes and reports professional presented is already reaping real benefits for our school. Simon Bulmer, Business Manager, Hugh Gaitskell Primary School

SAM - Reevy Hill Primary School

The SAM system is a god-send. It has saved me so much time and effort when dealing with absence as the system does it all for you. It is easy to use and enables you to manage absence effectively in school.Louisa Sharp, Reevy Hill Primary School

SAM - Miriam Lord Primary School

This system allows us to track and manage staff absence from one place. The first time we used it I was surprised to see that ten people had hit the trigger point for monitoring whereas we had only identified two. It keeps me compliant with notice periods in line with the policy and issues the correct letter for each stage of the process. It takes the confusion out of absence management. It extrapolates and condenses a large amount of data into easy to read reports that are accessible for Governors. It makes reporting to governors a two minute job.

Andy Meehan, Business Manager - Lister Primary School

“We’ve now been using SAM for over a year and it has been a valuable asset to the school. We have managed to reduce our recorded absence for both teachers and support staff from 1520 days to 729 days resulting in a saving of 791 days. This is of great benefit to the school and pupils. We find using SAM helpful and insightful and look forward to continuing to use SAM in 2017.” 

SAM - Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar Schoo

 “Using SAM has not only saved us time it has also saved us money. At the end of the first year we found that we had saved 712 days of absence overall across teaching and support staff. This will have helped to reduce supply costs across the school and increase attendance of key members of our teaching staff which is so important to us and our pupils. We would recommend that all schools consider using SAM to help manage absence.”


 

SAM - Princeville Primary School

“We are delighted with how SAM has helped us reduce absence. In the first year, we have increased staff attendance by 49% and saved 279 days of absence. This has saved the school time and money and has helped us to maintain the consistency of teaching standards across the school. We would highly recommend SAM to any school.”
