Frequently Asked Questions

Clare Whelan School Administrator, St Margaret Mary's RC Primary

"Moving to a new payroll provider can be a daunting prospect for a school but One Education’s payroll service was able to migrate all of our payroll information over seamlessly. They continue to provide a high level of service and always deal with enquiries promptly and efficiently."

What does our payroll service provide?

  • Peace of mind that one of the most fundamental, yet sensitive functions is managed to meet your specific needs. You maintain the control, we ensure it happens.
  • A designated payroll adviser who takes the time to get to know you and your school and who works to your agenda.
  • Payments from your nominated bank account made direct to your employees. As we are a BACS Approved Bureau this couldn’t be easier.
  • Ensuring you see where the money goes, prior to any payments being made, we provide you with a detailed full payroll summary report. Immediately after payment you receive a full costing report configured to meet your needs and coded in accordance with your financial reporting system.
  • Spreading the costs - our payroll processing charges are invoiced monthly, allowing you to manage the cost throughout the year.
  • Statutory legislation such as RTI (real time information) and auto-enrolment into pension schemes is all included with the service. 
  • Knowledge and experience of education sector pension schemes including Teachers Pension Scheme and the relevant Local Authority Scheme (including GMPF).

David Thompstone Chief Finance Officer, Victorious Academies Trust

A very friendly and professional payroll service from One Education, primarily from Nathan Davies since we started 12 months ago, including good advice and reassurance before the contract started; a smooth transfer process from our previous payroll provider that was completed in a short timescale; patience whilst we established the related BACS payment facility and accommodating urgent requests for information with good humour.

Transactional HR – what will this do for you?

  • Preparing and issuing documentation such as new starter letters, contracts of employment, confirmation of contractual changes and documentation for leavers is time consuming. We ensure you have everything you need at the time you need it most.
  • All documentation created will reflect your school’s individual identity and status.
  • A range of service options to suit your needs. For example: documents can be sent electronically to a nominated contact at your school or as a hard copy directly to the individual employee.
  • For maintained schools, we can ensure the relevant Local Authority (as the Employing Authority) is informed of any staff appointments at your school fulfilling your statutory requirement to do so.

We transferred from a Local Authority payroll service to join One Education Payroll. This was the best decision we ever made. Everything is dealt with promptly and efficiently. The team are available during office hours to answer any queries you may have. Everyone is really helpful, friendly and approachable, they really go out of their way to resolve your issue. I personally cannot recommend them high enough.
