HR Strategy for school

I volunteered to facilitate development of an HR Strategy for our school (it's one of the things I do...) - working on a development session for tomorrow morning.

Already done the usual data gathering = STEEP, SWOT and filling the team in on stuff they were not up-to-date on.

Next step?

Thinking about how our strategy will be driven by Vision/Ethos, Short and Medium term goals, etc. Looks like we will have to do some work on the overall components as well - tentative list:
  • Change capability
  • Recruitment and retention
  • Team working - across sites as well as within sites
  • Training and development/CPD
  • Flexibility to meet pupil needs
  • Remuneration
  • Life balance (NB NOT Work/Life balance - work is part of life!)
  • Performance management
  • Diversity/Equal Opps
  • Communications
  • Leadership, management and delivery

What's good is that we have a multi-discipline team from across our several sites doing the work for SMT to consider - a real move forward and one that seems to be paying off in terms of broadening and deepening staff understanding of some of the issues involved in running the school.
