However, a number of concerns with BSF were noted. These related to ICT managed services becoming more centralised, which may result in the loss of valued ICT staff. However, there will also be benefits associated with centralisation:
“We think we will lose our ICT manager in the next few weeks…soon we will not have him in school and we can’t reappoint him... I think that the managed service has the potential to deliver even better results because teachers will have access to someone who is working with a group of schools to bring the best solution…”(Headteacher)
