Cantium Business Solutions has developed a suite of HR Policies for Kent Maintained Schools on behalf of the Local Authority. These documents are designed to support Headteachers and line managers in the management of a range of staffing issues including absence and ill health, discipline, grievances and capability.

The Local Authority expects that all KCC Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools will use these documents as the basis for their HR policies. This document is also strongly recommended for consideration for adoption by Foundation and Aided Schools.

You can view these policies on the Cantium Business Solutions Service Now Portal. To contact the team call 03000 41 11 12 or email
