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".
Primary School Admissions 2018 - Deadline 15th January 2018
Reminder - Primary School Admissions 2018
I would be grateful if you could remind parents of children born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014 that they need to apply for a Reception School place by the closing date, 15th January 2018.
There are a number of outstanding applications across the borough so it would be supportive if parents can be directed to the Council’s website
www.southend.gov.uk/admissions where they can; apply online, look up admission criteria, view catchment area information, see allocations for
the last five admission rounds and download the Primary Admission Booklet 2018/19. If preferred, parents can also complete a paper application form by visiting the Civic Centre, or by requesting a form be posted to them.
Please find attached electronic copies of the information flyer and poster. Printed copies are available upon request.
For any queries please contact the School Admissions Team on 01702 212934 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your assistance.
