Ciphr HR Software for schools

Ciphr HR is an intuitive HR system that helps schools and academies to manage their people more effectively. Ciphr HR can be configured to manage staff with multiple roles and complex work patterns across multi-academy trusts and provides a comprehensive safeguarding module that allows for easy tracking and reporting of background checks. HR can develop and motivate school staff with Ciphr HR’s robust talent management and LMS functionality, and can improve recruitment and onboarding processes with Ciphr iRecruit and Ciphr Onboarding.

Staff can:

  • Enter any absence via self-service functionality

  • Review and accept school-wide policies

  • View and update their own objectives

  • Access online payslips

HR can:

  • Record and report on safeguarding information for staff including background checks, and safer recruitment training

  • Manage and report on absences, including holidays and sick leave

  • Process payroll based on pay spines and multiple roles, as well as teachers’ pensions

  • Apply system rules, branding, information and access levels across a multi-academy trust

  • Improve recruitment and onboarding processes for new staff

Comply with safeguarding requirements

Keep accurate safeguarding records and trigger automated alerts to ensure these are kept up to date, enabling HR to comply with regulatory requirements and maintain a single central record (SCR). Record checks that you carry out against each staff member, such as right to work checks, or go further and use Ciphr’s identity and background checks functionality to run extensive background checks using Ciphr’s integration with Experian, including enhanced DBS checks and occupational history checks.

Empower staff with self-service functionality

Ciphr HR gives your people the ability to manage their own profiles and make any changes to personal information. As well as staff uploading documentation, policies that may be crucial to your school can be uploaded to Ciphr HR and distributed to your staff, for mandatory approval.

Ciphr HR comes with powerful absence management functionality. Staff can book holidays and enter any sick leave, from anywhere, and see who else is off in the team – ideal for teachers working different work patterns, as they can enter the times and dates they were absent. In turn, HR can verify and report on all absence requests.
