Rickmanworth School

Schools Payroll Service

Dataplan Education is an outsourced payroll service providing payroll for schools that, unlike many of the big players who offer a bit of everything, specialise in school payrolls. In fact that’s all we do and we are proud of the fact.

And, when you specialise in something, you get really good at it!

At Dataplan Education, we are not a HR business with payroll bolted on, or a software provider expanding their service. You could say payroll is all we do; we prefer to say payroll is everything we do. We offer everything other outsourcers do, but with some important differences.

  • A specialist school project manager to handhold the transition to Dataplan
