We would like to reassure you that we are closely monitoring the situation and working with the government and NHS.
For guidance on coronavirus and the latest information for Devon, visit Devon County Council’s coronavirus (COVID-19) advice pages.
All operational HR/personnel services provided by the County Council are now part of HR ONE, our traded Human Resources service.
Certain support to maintained schools, including the provision of HR-related policies is funded centrally. However, where additional information, advice and guidance is required which is not centrally funded, or where the school is an academy school, it will be necessary to subscribe to HR ONE to access this support. The contact for doing so is either via 01392 385555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The HR policy and guidance documents for schools are located in the HR Policy and Guidance Library. Access to the documents on this site is based on the level of service purchased from HR ONE.
