frequently asked questions

We will issue you with your engagement letter and the policies templates within two working days of receipt of your order form.
Our invoice will be emailed to you within a week of you receiving the policies, which must be paid in line with our standard payment terms and conditions.
We send you all of the policies by email to the one email address included on your order form. The documents will be in Word format so that you can personalise them as required.
If significant changes occur throughout the year’s subscription we will update the template policies accordingly and provide advice on the reasons for the change and the implications on your practice. For example, if Keeping Children Safe in Education is updated before September 2021, we will update our policy templates to reflect those changes in guidance. As a subscriber to the policy updates we will send you our amended document so that you can reflect the changes in your own policies.
More minor changes will be reflected in our annual review. It is important that a sensible balance is struck between keeping policies up to date and making so many changes that you are constantly implementing new drafts and training staff upon them. Too many changes cause confusion and undermine the core purpose of a policy – best practice.
In August each year you will receive a new set of documents that will factor in any new or revised statutory legislation applicable to the next academic year. Where appropriate we will also include changes that result from developments in best practice.
The service gives you access to template documents and our updates to those documents only. It does not include any advice from our HR consultants or education lawyers regarding the areas covered by the policies, personalisation or implementation. We can of course support you with these elements, just let us know what you need and we can agree a plan with you.
Yes. You can buy our policies pack for a one-off fee of £1,750 plus VAT without subscribing to the annual service. It will then be your responsibility to ensure that these documents maintain up-to-date and compliant with revised legislation as and when appropriate.

The pack has been designed and priced to provide you with a complete set of policies that reflect your statutory obligations. As an existing client we are delighted to offer you a discount on the full service (including annual updates). For further information please contact your designated HR Consultant.
