The answer would depend upon the nature of your establishment. You have mentioned that it is a School. But has not mentioned whether it is a Government School or Government Aided school or a purely private school. For each one there are different Provident Fund Schemes, depending upon the State where it is located. So, unless you give the full details it would be difficult to give a proper guidance.

Dear Suresh,
If the employment contract is for more than 30 days and the employee(s) employed by the Contractor or you have worked for more than 30 days in a year, they are eligible for PF deduction. An equal amount has to be contributed by the employer also. Go through Act, and every thing will be clear. Now-a-days, Contract Documents also contain such clauses as regards to pay/wages, PF, leave, other social obligation to be met by the employer/contractor.
Best Wisehs.

If establishment is covered under PF Scheme, the fixed term employees will be covered under the provisons of act where as reatainers will not. Mritunjay Nath Sahu GM(HR)

Sir Is the deduction of pf is responsibility of employer . If form 11 not given by the employee so is the deduction is mandatory.

providing form 11 and obtaining it duly signed from employee is employer's duty, contribution to EPF would be opted or not, it is choice of the employee
it is a long chapter to discuss, but in short, if the payment is made after deduction of TDS u/s 194J, then EPF provisions may be exempted, but if TDS is not deducted, then such staff is employee of establishment, and are eligible for EPF provided their basic + da is below 15000/- per month
