Models of School Organisation - HR Guidance and Toolkit

In recognition of the fact that many schools continue to consider their strategic direction in relation to academisation, federation, collaboration or amalgamation, an HR guidance and toolkit document has been published which covers many of the initial HR considerations that headteachers and governors may have when planning interim or permanent arrangements.

Intended to complement the existing documents "A Guide to Models of School Organisation" and "Guidance for governing bodies: Joining or Creating a Formal Partnership, Federation or Multi Academy Trust (MAT)" with the associated "Audit tool for School Leaders and Governors when considering collaboration" - available in the School Organisation section of the cyps.info site - the HR Guidance and Toolkit covers aspects such as headteacher pay considerations, template job descriptions, options for second level leadership and gives an example memorandum of understanding for use between participating schools.

If you have any comments or queries please email schoolshradvisory@northyorks.gov.uk

Strategic services documents relating to Federation and Collaboration can be found here.
