Cut the Cost of Staff Absence

Staff absence is the biggest cause of budget overspend.

It also puts additional strain on those left behind to cover, which in turn has a negative impact on pupil outcomes.

We have developed a dedicated area on our payroll and HR portal where you can view and analyse individual staff absence data in greater depth.

The data is displayed in easy to use heat maps and charts.

We can also provide a range of HR support services all designed to help you reduce the number of staff days lost to absence.
