Our Services

Human Resources

Our Human Resources team ensure expert guidance, delivery and support of high-quality HR and Payroll services for our Trust, within a framework of best practice, policy and law.

The full range of HR & payroll services are provided by our in-house team to our schools and central teams. This means that there are no 3rd party HR arrangements and our leaders benefit from the skills, experience and passion to support school improvement through this highly regarded team.

We are a people organisation and we recognise we cannot achieve our mission together, without attracting the very best talent and being recognised as a great place to work.

HR Team - no Julie

Our HR and Payroll Team support all aspects of this throughout the career journey of our people. Specialist systems and software underpin our approach to many aspects of delivery and we have a comprehensive and integrated HR and Payroll system (People XD) to support colleagues and leaders throughout career stages.

Our HR Service is organised in two main levels – transactional and advisory, with specialisms around, for example, employment relations, union engagement, case work, wellbeing and strategic HR. We operate on a needs basis, recognising that schools and teams go through various stages of development and how this relates to people activities.
