Employment/HR

Our Services

Independent schools face unique challenges in managing a large workforce consisting of both teaching and support staff, including the particular requirements of term-time only contractual arrangements.

We will support you in relation to contracts, policies, procedures, redundancy/restructuring, grievance/capability/disciplinary matters and equal opportunities.

Our school clients achieve their staffing goals assisted by our clear advice on the range of options open to them and our frank assessment of the accompanying risks.

SafeEmploy for Schools is an annual retainer arrangement that we offer in respect of employment/HR support.

Several schools have taken up SafeEmploy for Schools which, depending on your requirements, may include:

  • Annual fixed fee retainer in respect of a telephone/email helpline direct to our team for day-to-day employment advice
  • Audit of contracts of employment and relevant HR policies
  • Insurance to cover legal expenses/compensation in the event of an employment tribunal claim
  • Ad hoc or ongoing HR support.
