In association with our legal partners Browne Jacobson, we have created a comprehensive set of templates for each statutory school policy and document.
Developed by our team of experts, practitioners and contributors, all statutory policies have been through a rigorous quality assurance process and legal review and approval by education advisors Browne Jacobson.
Designed to help you save time, these templates should be customised to meet the specific needs of your setting, help ensure that you are prepared for an inspection and clearly demonstrate your compliance with statutory requirements.
