This page contains documents to make life for the Academy Communications professional a little bit easier. Where possible they have been presented as pro formas: you will have to do a little writing and editing, but not as mach as trying to generate the document from scratch. Others have been presented as samples: examples from which you can draw ideas.

COMMUNICATIONS POLICY - every Academy must have one of these.

SAFEGUARDING LEAFLET - a copy of this should be given to all visitors to the Academy.

PRESS RELEASE - how to lay out and write a press release.

Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.

Samuel Johnson
