TheSchoolBus Compliance Manager is a cloud-based document management solution enabling schools, academies and MATs to safely store and easily manage important policies and documents.

Compliance manager

You're in control

Approving your documents is made simple through a step-by-step process, and you can monitor who has read documents and provided confirmation of understanding – creating a detailed audit trail.

The best part? When a change to legislation or DfE guidance is issued, any affected policy or document you store in our system is identified and you receive real-time notification of what’s changed and what you need to do next, alongside an updated template to get you started.

With Compliance Manager, you can:

  • Gain a head start

    Access to hundreds of amendable model documents

    Upload existing policies and documents, and easily assign related legislation and guidance

Super helpful

"I have been using TheSchoolBus for just over a year and wonder how I managed without it! The website is user friendly and is sectioned into seven key areas. Its difficult to pick out the 'best' areas, because the whole website is packed with up to the minute, timely information. The resources it provides are amazing and the 3-minute reads provide the headlines on new initiatives and legislation so I'm fully up-to-date, until I have time to read the information in full, invaluable really in a busy environment. What's also been super helpful for me is the policy templates. I cannot recommend TheSchoolBus enough, take a trial and you'll wonder how you managed without it!"
