Interactive HR List Version 1.30 (May 18) - 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.

GOV.UK update – Flu vaccination in schools
Between October and December all children of primary school age across Essex will be offered their annual flu vaccination. Children attending any Southend primary school will be offered the vaccine at school and clinics. Additional sessions are held in children centres and health clinics across the borough to enable home schools children or child who miss the vaccine in school the opportunity to receive it.
The childhood flu vaccination programme has been consistently shown to reduce hospital admission and GP attendance for school aged children thereby supporting positive health outcomes and school attendance. The success of the programme in Southend is attributable to effective partnership working between schools and the health provider; without the school’s dedication and support for the programme the high immunisation rate achieved wouldn’t be possible.
If you require any further information, please contact the EPUT immunisation team on 01702 220181.
Please see the attached information for Headteachers and school staff.
