Help your school leaders avoid hours lost to policy overload. Use our downloadable flowchart to ensure your school only creates the policies it absolutely needs.

Download the flowchart

Use this flowchart as a decision helper when reviewing an existing policy to sense-check whether you still need it, or can trim it down.

You can also use it before asking your school leaders to write a new policy, to determine whether the policy is really what’s needed, or whether you could achieve the same outcomes by another means.

For a list of the statutory policies your school must have, see this article.
