Here is a selection of comments from our clients:
“When I place all my HR matters in the hands of SDC HR I have complete trust and confidence in the Company. Their customer service is exemplary and all members of the team have immense knowledge and skills in abundance. They will take on the full workload for each case if that is required and, magically, that seems to include ‘absorbing’ all associated stress and, anxiety that comes with the territory. This leaves me free to focus on other leadership tasks within the School and I try to apply some of what I see in action from the team to my own work; skilful questioning, empathic listening, progressing challenging conversations and situations. I know that the service is excellent value for money as the outcomes that have been secured for the School by the team have been the best ones for all parties concerned, without exception.”
Head Teacher, Penn Wood School
“The service provided by David Charity of SDC HR is prompt, professional and personalised. Meticulous attention to detail and assiduous focus on progressing matters ensure the service is value for money, as well as providing that essential peace of mind. Marish Academy Trust will be using them again and recommend them highly.”
Executive Headteacher, Marish Academy Trust
“We used the services of SDC HR for a very tricky and intricate investigation, we found Sue to be the commensurate professional. Her attention to detail was exemplary. She was very sensitive to our situation but also ensured she managed to cover the key areas. She was also always at the end of the phone whenever we wished to double check any detail with her.”
Chair of Governors, Parlaunt Park School, Slough
We asked SDC HR to look at our HR policies and procedures and bring them up to date to comply with current legislation. SDC drafted up exactly what we needed and then set about training our staff. Within 3 months we saw the benefit throughout our business and it greatly reduced the number of HR issues we had previously experienced. If we’ve ever had a situation that is particularly delicate SDC are always at hand to come in and personally handle the situation. It is so reassuring to have this professional expertise on hand, both relieving the stress of managing staff and in knowing that each case has been dealt with both properly and morally. They are an extremely professional organisation who work very hard to ensure that they deliver the right support and advice, and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone.

“I have been consistently impressed with the expertise SDC HR has been able to supply… I have much appreciated David’s calm, measured approach combined with his considerable knowledge of employment law. Schools are complex organisations and it is important for Headteachers to have access to high quality specialist professionals … David is one such specialist and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
Headteacher, Herschel Grammar School, Slough
“David has provided me with invaluable support which has enabled me to get on with my day job: running the school.”
Executive Headteacher, Haybrook College, Slough
“SDC-HR Ltd have provided invaluable support to me as a new Head Teacher, from being at the end of the phone for a quick question to leading me though some very difficult HR situations. I trust SDC-HR implicitly as they have the highest professional standards and offer the highest levels of service.”
Head Teacher at The Westgate School
“Sue and David are true professionals who are dedicated and hard working. Sue brings real thoroughness to her work, which is rarely seen. I have absolute confidence in her work and the advice she gives. Her knowledge and experience in HR matters, especially in the education sector, is without parallel in my experience.
I have absolute confidence in David’s work and his ability to make good judgments/decisions. He brings a sound legal mind to business and I would have no hesitation in commending him to others.
As a Governor it is of great comfort to know that you are able to draw on sound HR and legal advice which gives you the confidence to proceed with difficult issues. The combination of these two people provides an outstanding HR package.”
