How we can help your school

Our HR Support service acts as a bolt-on to our Education+ legal service, providing schools with access to unlimited HR support and advice from HR Business Partner level upwards. Our team of education solicitors and highly qualified HR practitioners support your school’s internal processes to give you legal advice across a range of HR specialisms. From discipline and grievance to absence management and redundancy, we have full knowledge of the unique environment within which schools operate and can advise on areas such as the Burgundy Book, Teachers’ Pensions and more.
Where required, we also act as a strategic HR function for schools and academies. We understand that schools already have a lot on their plate, and sometimes extra help from external specialists is needed. At HY Education, we work collaboratively with senior leadership teams on complex transformation projects, and deliver strategic HR advice tailored to your school.

As a team of educational solicitors and HR practitioners, we have full knowledge of the school sector. We’ve worked with schools and academies of all sizes and understand that every educational institution is unique. Whatever area of HR you need support in, our team will respond quickly with the advice you need, provided in a way you can easily put it into action.
