I trust and value the highly outstanding support and advice that Natalie and the Burnetts team have given to me as Headteacher. The school could not have wanted for more in its HR provider. Natalie and the team go the extra mile in supporting and advising the school. Their deep understanding of educational matters and prompt service have been exactly what I have needed as Headteacher.
Headteacher, Secondary School
We had an ambitious shared project which you helped deliver. I'm very grateful for your professional expertise.
Executive Headteacher, Secondary School
Natalie has provided the school with timely and well thought out advice and strategies for dealing with a wide array of issues. She is familiar with a variety of schools, understanding how the current climate affects us all and how schools need to know exactly where they stand legally. We have particularly been impressed with the updates, newsletters and training sessions.
Headteacher, Technology College
I have had the privilege of working with Burnetts' HR team for a many years across a number of Community schools and Academies. The advice and support has been extremely reliable and realistic. For a Multi-Academy Trust, Burnetts were invaluable in every aspect of the necessary due diligence process. I have personally recommended the Burnetts' Team to colleague Headteachers who have been similarly impressed by the excellent service provided.
Executive Headteacher, Multi-Academy Trust
Burnetts provides an excellent service, with prompt and efficient responses, and with attention to detail. They are a magnificent adviser to us for HR related matters.
