School HR Services

We'd love to meet you to discuss your school hr needs.

We offer several HR services for schools and academies in the North East area across the education sector, including a mix of remote HR advice and support and an extensive list of Pay As You Go options. You can opt for the HR support services that suit your organisation’s needs when your organisation needs them and always count on high-quality advice.

At PPM, we believe people are your most valuable asset, and they are essential in providing quality education to your pupils. It is important that you have motivated and effective staff and your school HR services and HR matters are managed by professional HR advisors for schools and dealt with efficiently. Dealing with human resources problems requires expert knowledge and can be very draining to your own team and school business manager.

Human resources in education aren’t just about keeping the right amount of staff on hand, it also involves protecting your students and school from possible legal risk. Making sure that your entire team works to best practices is so important to the running of any school or academy. If you do face an incident, you want to know that your human resources department has the tools and skills to deal with the situation fast. Prevention is the best way to keep your campus safe and your company insulated from risk with professional HR advice for schools.

Our HR service for schools offers a great solution to support schools. You get unlimited access to our dedicated professional HR advice from an HR expert with an unrivalled understanding of the day-to-day challenges faced by schools and academies. Our service is tailored to handling hr needs with expert knowledge and advice. It offers a range of other additional services, including hr and payroll services, occupational health, DBS checks, employment law, employment contracts and employment legislation.

Please take a look at our education HR services from qualified HR experts.

Whether you have opted out of the local authority advisory service or require support to effectively manage your existing school’s hr services, we offer schools a complete range of services, including our remote support and advice package and a full range of ‘pay as you go’ options. Our hands-on experience gives us the proven experience of your needs, the policies your school works with and the changing landscape of staff in schools and academies.
