Governance Compliance

The Handsam Governance module provides all the information you need to prove compliance relating to the relevant Governance Standards, dependent on your school’s status. This system is backed up by comprehensive resources which are provided in a diarised tasklist with each task being delegated to the relevant member of staff or governor to complete and evidence. This allows the creation of an audit trail which will satisfy OFSTED, ISI and DfE requirements.
The system also prompts Governors to ask a series of searching questions of the school on topics such as governance structures, employment, health and safety, finance, data protection and equal opportunities. Further topics covered are: managing redundancy, capability, admissions and exclusions procedures.
The content of the Handsam system is managed and updated by Handsam’s editorial panel of leading UK educationalists, including experts in; Law, Finance and Governance as well as specialists in policy writing, health and safety, employment and managing contractors.
