Interactive HR List Version 1.28 (Nov 17) - now password protected
HR services are continually looking for ways to develop SLN further to assist our customer schools. As part of our HR service schools have access to a range of model policies, in order to protect these documents the HR Interactive List will be password protected from 3 February 2017. If you are a customer school please contact Hollie Kane on email@example.com to request the password.
Please find attached the latest update of 'Interactive List of all HR documents' (including Payroll).
By clicking on any of the document names you are taken directly to that document whether you are in SLN or not! Please ensure you are always using the most up to date list as we will be publishing revised versions on SLN every term to ensure that the list is always complete and up to date.
If you have any questions on any of the HR documents then please contact Liz Farrell firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need any support on using SLN or the interactive list then please contact the Services for Schools team on email@example.com. We look forward to receiving your feedback on your experiences of using the interactive list.
This document is always searchable by using the tag "interactivehr".
CCTV Monitoring Service - why not join our partnership?
Is your school plagued by vandalism and break-ins? Why not join the Southend on Sea CCTV Partnership?
Many schools already use CCTV systems during the school day to help with the monitoring of their sites. Now, with the right equipment and using their existing Internet link, these systems can be switched over to be monitored by the professionals after hours, at weekends and during school breaks. Southend on Sea’s Control room is monitored 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. For a discussion of how this service can enhance the security of your school, whether or not you already have a CCTV system, please contact:
Barry Davis CCTV Control Room Manager Tel: 01702 212066 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also see the attached flyer for further information.
To confirm the KS2 Informal Moderation Meeting 1 is taking place at the Tickfield Centre (Darwin room - front). There is parking available, although the facilities can get very busy.
Thank you and sorry for the short notice.
