HR Matters

Good people practices are essential to the smooth running of a school and to helping you deliver an outstanding service to pupils.  Managing people can be some of the best – and hardest – parts of a Headteachers job.  It can require courage and determination.  There are also times when issues have to be addressed and problems confronted.


It’s not easy keeping up with employment law or finding your way round policies which you may only have to refer to infrequently.  This session will provide an overview of what’s new and what’s coming, as well as a refresher of some things you might not have needed for a while.


We will focus on practical issues.  We’ll cover changes to employment law and use current cases to look at some evergreen issues, such as unacceptable behaviour.  And you can bring any live issues you want help with and which can be discussed confidently.


There’ll also be time for your questions and to discuss any issues arising.
