I'm inventing a staff handbook for my setting and wondered what to put in it. Would any of you be so kind to throw some ideas into the pot?






Hi I work in a school nursery and we have a staff handbook. Hope this will help we are still adding to it

If you can spare about £20 you can save a lot of time getting the PLA Employee Handbook. Like the policies it is editable so you can make it your own. That is what I've done this summer and just added in some daily routines and told staff it is to be read alongside all the policies (some of which are abbreviated in the handbook). It saved me so much time and stress - now I just have to find enough paper to print it all on.
