3 1. Introduction REDUNDANCY AND WORKFORCE PLANNING POLICY 1.1 This policy has been adopted by Lathom High School and sets out the approach to dealing with workforce planning and potential redundancies. 1.2 The Authority as a caring employer, has sought to establish good employment practices to achieve good industrial relations and positive staff morale. To facilitate the continuation of these practices, the Authority and ATL, NASUWT, NAHT, NUT, ASCL and UNISON, GMB and UNITE have together drawn up this policy, procedure and guidelines to facilitate the development of well managed procedures at school level. 1.3 It is the Governing Body s policy to promote and implement sound workforce planning (Appendices one and two) and to avoid compulsory redundancies wherever possible. However, the needs of the school may from time to time require a reduction in the overall number of staff employed or organisational changes that could result in some employees being made redundant. 1.4 Where this is necessary, the Governing Body will ensure that: The total number of redundancies made is kept to a minimum Employees and their representatives are fully consulted on any proposals and their implementation Selection for redundancy is based on clear criteria that will, as far as possible, be objectively and fairly applied Every effort is made to find suitable alternative work for employees selected for redundancy; and Support and advice is provided to employees selected for redundancy to help them find suitable work when their employment has come to an end. 2 Consultation 2.1 Consultation will be carried out with the recognised Teacher Associations and Trade Unions in respect of any redundancy proposals. Individual employees will also be consulted. AMENDED JUNE 2015 Page 3

4 3 Voluntary measures to avoid redundancy 3.1 Should it become necessary to reduce the school workforce it is this school s policy to try to avoid or minimise the number of compulsory redundancies through voluntary measures. 3.2 Voluntary measures which may be used for this purpose are as follows: Whether training can be provided to equip employees with new skills for redeployment to suitable alternative work. Whether the numbers of casual workers, temporary employees and supply staff can be reduced; Whether a temporary freeze can be placed on recruitment into any posts that become vacant due to a member of staff s resignation; Whether any employees whose job might be redundant can be transferred elsewhere within the school; Whether an employee can be nominated for an interview in another school as outlined in Appendix 3(a). Whether or not any employees can be voluntarily transferred to a vacancy within another Lancashire school under the transferred redundancy scheme. (Appendix 3(b)) Whether any employees whose job might be redundant can be retrained to carry out other types of work. Whether any employees wish to volunteer for redundancy or other voluntary measures including part-time working arrangements, flexible retirement, secondments and unpaid sabbaticals. In the case of teachers in High School settings, an audit of second and third subjects will be conducted to establish which teacher s can be redeployed to other faculties to teach those subjects. Employment as a cover teacher. 3.3 Expressions of interest in voluntary measures will be invited from the school workforce and serious consideration given to such requests. 3.4 The Governing Body delegates to the Head teacher the role of assessing the feasibility of voluntary measures including factors such as the school s need to retain the types of knowledge and skills that are believed to be essential to meet its future curriculum aims, the need to retain a balance of different skills and any other relevant/appropriate factors. AMENDED JUNE 2015 Page 4

5 4. Redundancy selection criteria 4.1 The criteria used in selecting employees for redundancy will depend on the existing circumstances and the future needs of the School. Every effort will be made to construct a fair and robust set of criteria following appropriate consultations, which will be reasonably, fairly and consistently applied. 4.2 The Governing Body will establish a Staffing Review Committee which will ensure that the pool of employees to whom the selection criteria are applied is fairly defined. 4.3 Where an employee in the pool for selection has a disability, the Governing Body will ensure that s/he is not put at any disadvantage on account of the application of the selection criteria and will accordingly make reasonable adjustments to the selection procedure to remove any disadvantage that the disabled employee would otherwise have. 4.4 Reasonable allowance will be made for absences for maternity, paternity or adoption leave and reasons related to disability, so that employees who have taken maternity, paternity or adoption leave or who have a disability are not placed at a disadvantage owing to their absence. 4.5 Guidance on fair and reasonable selection criteria and identifying selection pools is given in Appendix 1. 5 Alternative work 5.1 The Staffing Review Committee will make all reasonable attempts to assist employees who are at risk of redundancy to secure suitable alternative work. 5.2 The school workforce will be informed of the available vacancies in other Lancashire Schools during the consultation period in the formal stage of the procedure and again at the time of their selection. They will be given the opportunity to discuss with their Head teacher which vacancies are likely to be suitable for them. 5.3 Priority will be given wherever possible to employees at risk of redundancy for any post which becomes available in the school, subject to their suitability for the post. AMENDED JUNE 2015 Page 5

6 5.4 Employees have a legal entitlement to be offered any suitable alternative work that is available if they are made redundant while on maternity leave. On that basis, prior consideration will be given to employees on maternity leave before other at risk employees are considered for vacancies within the school. 5.5 The Governing Body is committed to nominating employees for vacancies with other Lancashire schools through the Authority, under the voluntary transfer and transferred redundancy schemes Appendices 3(a) and 3(b). The Governing Bodies of those schools have the right to select the best available candidate in relation to any given vacancy. 6 Time off work 6.1 Employees who are at risk of redundancy will be granted reasonable time off work with pay, in order to look for new employment or to make arrangements for training for future employment. This will include time off to attend job interviews or visit an employment agency or a job centre in connection with new employment. 6.2 Any employee taking such time off will not be required to make up the time taken by working additional hours at another time. 7 Termination of employment 7.1 Employees with two or more years continuous service, as calculated in accordance with the Employment Rights Act 1996 and the Redundancy Payments (Modifications) Order 1999, who are dismissed on grounds of redundancy, will be entitled to a statutory redundancy payment. The amount of this payment will be confirmed when the employee is selected for redundancy and the sum will be paid after their termination date. 7.2 The contractual and/or statutory notice periods will be given as appropriate.
