HR and education policies for academy trusts
Developed by our national, award-winning education lawyers and HR experts, our ready-to-use terms and conditions, policies and procedures have been designed to provide you with a cost- and time-effective way to keep your trust’s documents up to date.
Supplied in individual, editable Microsoft Word documents, the education and HR templates reflect best practice and ensure that your trust is legally compliant. Drafted in line with national terms and conditions, the suite of documents can be applied across multiple geographical regions for larger trusts with academies located across different jurisdictions.
Each template can be adapted in accordance with your own existing policies or can be implemented immediately by each of your academies.
The comprehensive pack of 42 core education and HR policies can be purchased as a one-off package for £1,850 (plus VAT). If you do not need the HR documents, you can purchase only the education policies for £1,475 (plus VAT).
Complete the form below to order your policy pack today.
You can also subscribe to our annual subscription service for an additional £650 (education only policies) or £875 (all policies) per year. This means that in advance of the new academic year, you will automatically have access to an updated set of policies, reflecting any changes in legislation and best practice developments. You are under no obligation to subscribe to this additional service, but if you don’t, it will then be your responsibility to ensure that your documents remain up to date and compliant with revised legislation as and when appropriate.

Frequently asked questions
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 2023, 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.
Our aim is to send you the new policies in July of each year. These will factor in any new or revised statutory legislation applicable to the forthcoming academic year. Where appropriate we will also include changes that result from developments in best practice.
