Delivering Effective HR in Schools & Academies


As in any business, Human Resources Management is a complex yet essential part of the day-to-day running of education establishments. As an employer, you have a vast array of HR responsibilities within your remit, all of which can be a burden for busy teaching staff. Without effective HR management in place, employee relations and staff engagement can disintegrate very quickly.

Some of the daily issues you must tackle include:

  • The Safer Recruitment process
  • Offer letters and contracts
  • HR Policies – the Employee Handbook
  • Performance management
  • Absence management
  • Disciplinary and grievance matters
  • Shared parental leave, maternity/paternity/adoption leave
  • Staff welfare
  • Legislation change

Of course we understand your number one priority is delivering an exceptional standard of education to your students, but the burden of HR (alongside other daily management issues) can eat up valuable resources. Teachers tend not to be great managers (many by their own admission); after all they’re there to teach and want to get on with doing just that.

 At Park City we offer a specialist HR service to schools and academies. Our experience within the sector allows us to deliver a personal, tailored service by consultants that fully understand the demands and challenges that schools face. We act as your personal HR manager, so you can be sure that all bases are covered when it comes to employment law. Even if you have your own internal HR professional, we can support them for special projects or for updates on legislative changes.

As well as our regular on site visits and a dedicated HR consultant, we also provide staff training programs and a 24hour email and telephone helpline for those niggling, “keep you up all night” issues.

By using Park City’s outsourced HR for Education service you can reduce costs, free up time, increase your HR capability and lessen the HR Burden by letting us take care of it.

We can offer you a free HR healthcheck for your school - click here for more details.
