Kelly Baker – SLE Pen Portrait

SLE Specialism: Strategic Business Management HR Management, Premise/Site Development, Procurement and Change Management


I have worked on a consultancy basis for Barnsley local Authority, supporting both Primary and Secondary schools with a wide range of HR issues.

I am currently a Business and HR Manager at a Secondary mainstream school serving learners aged 11-16. As part of the Senior Leadership Team, I oversee all strategic business and staffing operations.

I have experience in school to school support, delivering brokered services to SLTs/Governing Bodies to support with whole school change management and efficiency savings.

Recently I have led on the implementation of a new ICT contract, negotiating at a strategic level throughout the tendering exercise.
