Providing schools with an economic, efficient and effective, fully managed payroll service
The HR Business Centre will provide you with an economic, efficient and effective, fully managed payroll service, using the London Borough of Bexley’s integrated HR computer system known as TOPS (The On-Line People System).
The software system is provided by NorthgateArinso, a leading HR software company, and is supported by the Councils ICT contractor.
TOPS is used by the Council’s and schools HR support services and as such, both payroll and personnel services share common data and are reliant upon each other in order to deliver a complete HR service. The System is also fully integrated with Occupational Health
In order to provide an efficient payroll service, the timely and accurate supply of data and up-to-date personnel records are essential. As such, both the schools and their HR provider are integral to the overall service performance.
The Service is offered to Bexley Community and VA Schools And is also offered to Academy Schools. However, it should be noted that the service does not continue automatically on Academy conversion and 3 months notice must be given of the change of status, at which point Bexley will confirm if an Academy payroll service can be offered or not. If the required notice is not given a 3 month charge will be levied
The service can be made available to out of Borough Academy Schools but due to the differences in Terms and Conditions which are likely to exist, will require separate specification- please e-mail to discuss options.
