Once your statutory policies and documents have been created and approved you are given the ability to email them over to the relevant staff members. The member of staff is then prompted to login, download the policy/document and confirm once they have read it. The record is then automatically updated and resets the expiry period (if required).
4 Simple Steps:
- Create your statutory policies and document library with expiry periods (if required).
- Email appropriate staff.
- Staff member logs in, reads the document/s and signs them off.
- The record is then automatically updated and resets the expiry period (if required).
Cost depends on the volume of data files held, please feel free to contact us to discuss.
Each new academic year schools are required to review their statutory policies and documents.
The following are required to hold each of these policies and other documents, and must meet the requirements that apply to their school or trust:
- school leaders in all schools
- governing bodies in local-authority-maintained schools
- proprietors of academies and independent schools
Schools and trusts are not always required to hold a specific policy for each requirement. It is possible to meet several requirements collectively, unless stated otherwise.
The drafting of school policies can be delegated to any member of school staff, unless stated otherwise.
Some policies need to be reviewed. Where it doesn’t, we strongly advise you to review the policy annually. Where there’s a change in the law or circumstances, you will need to revise your policies or documentation accordingly.
There are also levels of approval required. Not all policies need to be signed off by the full governing body.
There are instances where statutory guidance states that policies and procedures should be in place, although this is not the same as a legal requirement.
Organisations, such as your local authority, can provide free support and model policies which we suggest you consider.
