Tasks and processes checklist 

Download our checklist of HR tasks and processes you need to carry out in our school. 

The checklist is not exhaustive, and is designed to be adapted to suit the needs of your school.

KeyDoc: HR tasks and processes checklist

We created this with our associate education experts, Helen Cooper and Trevor Bailey.

The checklist suggests some timescales for tasks, but schools should set deadlines and timescales for HR tasks according to their own policies.
