Policies for Schools

Discounted subscription to Policies for Schools

We all know that keeping school policies up to date with the constant changes in government legislation is both tedious and time-consuming.  In recognition of this, GEL has established a partnership with Policies for Schools, an online resource which provides over 240 downloadable model school policies covering a wide range of essential areas including Safeguarding & Welfare of Children, School Inspection, School Health and Safety and School Improvement.

GEL members who wish to subscribe will receive a discount of £20 off the current annual subscription of £195, which will include all new and updated school policies added to the site during the year's subscription available to download straight away.
