Your schools workforce is your biggest asset and highest cost to any school. With school budgets coming under increasing pressure it is important that you have the right structures, people and policies to develop and deliver your school’s tangible school improvement priorities.
Schools HR staff have a vast experience of schools’ legislation and terms and conditions of employment and operate at the highest standards of professional competency to support schools. The schools HR team have been working in partnership with schools across the borough for many years.
We aim to deliver a personal and focused service that is reliable, flexible, confidential and responsive and tailored to suit your needs.
We have knowledge of Schools & Council policies and procedures and work to continually develop policies that are compliant with ACAS guidelines and employment case law and which have been consulted on with School trade unions so that they are ready for your Governing Board to adopt.
We offer high quality HR advice and guidance in order to ensure that statutory and contractual employment responsibilities are met by the school and the Local Authority where applicable.
Established strong working relationships with schools, LA colleagues, trade unions, professional associations and established links with regional and local employer associations.

Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board
The Lambeth Safeguarding Children's Board (LSCB) has lead responsibility for co-ordinating and scrutinising the effectiveness of what is done locally to improve outcomes for children and young people. It is committed to ensuring that all paid staff and volunteers in Lambeth are aware of their safeguarding responsibilities and have the required knowledge and skills to fulfil the practial implementation of this responsibility to a good standard.
Although much progress has already been made to improve the way that children are safeguarded in Lambeth, much is still needed to ensure that every child in Lambeth is kept safe and reaches his or her own full potential.
The LSCB depends on everyone, whether professionals or volunteers, parents or members of the public having an understanding of their own personal or professional responsibility to safeguard children and being vigilant and proactive in carrying it out. The provision of high quality and innovative single agency and multi-agency safeguarding training is considered by the board to be imperative in order to guarantee the safety and wellbeing of children in Lambeth.
All LSCB training is listed on the Learning Pool (link http://www.lambethscb.org.uk/training_professional_section)
