School and Academy Lockdown Procedures

Collyhurst Nursery School, Manchester

After the Lock Down audit had been completed and the draft policy had been drawn up, we arranged for a whole team briefing to put the policy into action. This was a fantastic practical INSET session where staff were relaxed and comfortable to ask questions to help them get a real sense of how to respond in a lock down situation. John and Tony delivered the session brilliantly and set the tone perfectly! The session allowed staff to take an active part in finalising our policy and they left the session with a real sense of ownership and understanding of our lock down emergency procedures.

In-House Support

Sophie Murfin Executive Principal - Wise Owl Trust

Knowing someone is at the end of the phone to give supportive advice, without legal jargon is extremely reassuring as an Executive Principal of 3 large academies. I find the whole HR team at One Education to be approachable and give clear, concise advice with a matter of urgency when needed.

Jennie Baxter HR Business Manager, Wise Owl Trust

We completely trust the HR&People team to deal with our HR matters, whether it be a phone call for a word of advice or support with disciplinary meetings and would, without hesitation recommend them to support your organisation too.

Equality Training

Matt Whitehead Executive Head, St James and Emmanuel Academy Trust

Laura Clark ran a number of equality training sessions for Directors and leaders in our Trust. The sessions were interactive, well planned and informative. They were incredibly well received and particularly useful in raising awareness of our statutory obligations and ensuring that the policies that inform our practice were relevant, understood by all and had a positive impact on the children, families and staff who attend and work within our schools. Thanks Laura.

Sharron White Head teacher, Denton West End Primary School

Thank you to One Education for providing Equality Duty training for myself, governors and staff recently. As a head teacher, I have had many mixed messages about what schools should be doing in regard to their statutory equality duty. Laura, was informative and very clear in her message. She gave us examples which helped to make the duty 'real' and we could apply this knowledge to potential issues in our own establishment. We now have a clear plan for moving forward.

Helena Miller Head of School, St Wilfrid’s CE Primary School

A comprehensive training session presented in a way for all staff to understand and which raised awareness of the protected characteristics under equality law. (SLT member at St Wilfrid's) The training session highlighted situations where I might not have previously thought there was an equality issue (School Business Manager at St Wilfrid's)

CAROLINE COYLE Headteacher - St Johns RC Primary, Chorlton

We have commissioned equality training from One Education on two occasions, once for our governors and once for our staff. The training provided was individually tailored to meet the needs of the audience and it was of excellent quality. It helped both the staff and governors to understand their legal requirements, but was delivered in an engaging way with actual examples of equality situations in schools which provoked interested discussion among the staff.

Jayne Stoba Deputy Head - St Luke's CofE Primary, Manchester

One Education delivered a whole staff INSET on equality. The INSET was informative and interactive allowing all staff to have a better understanding of equality and how this impacts within schools. The training has increased staff knowledge and empowered staff to be confident with regards to their understanding of the schools equality policy. I can highly recommend this excellent training to other schools.

Kate Bulman Headteacher - Baguley Hall Primary

The equality training was a useful overview of our collective responsibilities and gave clear guidelines for next steps.

Headteacher Primary School in Tameside

I would urge any school leaders that are considering mediation as a way forward or are considering using One Education to go for it! It has been money very well spent for us and I would definitely use this approach and this company again in the future.

Single Central Record (SCR)

Carol Harwood School Business Manager, The Heys Primary

A big thank you to One Education HR for the audit on the school's SCR. The audit was really informative & the report was very conclusive. I am glad I asked for the audit as we then had a visit from Ofsted, and the inspector commented on how good our process was and that I was very knowledgeable. I could not have done this with confidence if I had not had the audit from One Education.
