A safe pair of hands for your school payroll, pension and HR

Personal. Experienced. Reliable. Three words we believe make for the ideal partner for your school or academy when looking to outsource your payroll, pensions and HR.

With ever-increasing demands on schools and academies the need to outsource key functions to trusted partners is one way to make resources stretch. Outsourcing payroll, pensions and HR frees up your staff and resources, but make the wrong choice in provider, and you risk upsetting one of the most critical aspects of running your school … paying your staff.

Talk to the education specialists

There are specific complexities surrounding school payrolls and pensions that as an experienced education provider, we are ideally placed to handle.

One of the biggest challenges for schools is the speed of change in terms of legislation and compliance. Are you confident your in-house team, or current provider, can keep up with the changes and have the necessary expertise and skills to ensure they are carried out correctly?

Acting for more than 650 schools, we pay over 45,000 teachers and school employees and have been providing payroll services since 1969.

With all this experience, there is no payroll situation, however complex, that our team cannot handle.


I used to absolutely hate it when it was payroll time as there were always so many errors with our old provider, which took endless amounts of time to resolve. Since we have moved to you, the payroll has been such a doddle for me and I am so pleased we chose Dataplan.
