Additional HR Support Products

Our HR team appreciate schools often have existing HR support, either within their organisations or from other providers. But that doesn't stop you from accessing our specialist education knowledge through specific ‘one-off’ HR consultancy services.

These products can quality assure your existing procedures or receive expert independent advice with a strategic overview.

You do not need to buy any other services from us to purchase any of the HR products listed below.

School Equality Assessment & Training

One Education’s HR team has extensive experience in assisting and advising schools in relation to equality matters and their obligations under the public sector equality duty and specific duties.

In addition to supporting schools in relation to the day to day management of equality issues, our HR advisers can help schools to be proactive with regard to compliance with their statutory equality duties. This will, in turn, enable governors and senior leaders to face Ofsted inspections with confidence as far as equality matters are concerned.

One Education provides accredited and experienced school mediators who are used to dealing with the range of issues that cause disputes. You will be assigned with a mediator who acts as a point of contact should there be queries prior to, during or after the mediation.

The mediation process will include a scoping discussion, individual meetings with parties, a joint mediation session, sharing of mediation agreement where applicable and post mediation support and evaluation.


Lock down procedures

The guidance from the Department for Education states schools should have a process to deal with Lock Down situations combined within their Emergency Planning Procedures and developed with the help of appropriate experts.

However the DfE have not produced a template document due to the complex nature of critical incidents acknowledging no two are the same. 

All schools and academies should consider the need for robust and tested lockdown procedures. The procedures should be a sensible and proportionate response to any external or internal incident which has the potential to pose a threat to the safety of staff and pupils in the school.


ISR / Pay Audit

The One Education HR team has extensive experience in assisting and advising schools in relation to teachers’ pay, and leadership pay in schools and academies. In addition to our annual Model Teachers’ Pay Policy for schools to adopt, our advisers can also carry out a thorough and detailed audit of your pay policy and practices to ensure compliance with the STPCD, and to ensure good practice when it comes to reviewing teachers’ pay. We provide strategic advice and guidance on any establishment wanting to review their Individual School Range (ISR) with a view to altering leadership pay, and provide onsite training for governors and members of the School Leadership Team (SLT) who are involved in making pay decisions.
