Quick Guides Document Library

The Handsam Quick Guides Library contains hundreds of documents packed with all the relevant information you need to ensure the compliance of your school. This exhaustive resource includes both the actual law, regulations and guidance as published by the likes of the DfE and HSE, plus documents produced by Handsam's panel of experts which feature explanations of that law and guidance in layman’s terms, but could also be useful checklists, exemplars and templates for aspects such as risk assessments.


On top of that, you will receive regular emails letting you know what has been updated as part of our Compliance Matters service, which also gives you free access to the UK's only online magazine for education compliance. This allows school and academy leaders to be kept up to date on all legislation and guidance changes, having everything you need at your fingertips.

This comprehensive service is managed by our board of leading UK educationalists, including experts in law, finance and governance, as well as specialists in areas such as SEND, P.E. and Science. As a client of Handsam you will have access to this panel of experts so that you can receive answers to any of your questions, making this the perfect support package for any school.


As an additional service, we can also review, rewrite and adapt your school polices for you, or provide you with easy-to-adapt templates, in order to ensure your school is fully compliant.


Please contact us for more information about this service.
