Retension Schedules (Records Management Policy):
The retention period of pupil records is dependent on the type of file and information recorded within the record, and schools should note there is no one-size fits all approach to record retention – the purpose for processing and any local arrangements must be considered when deciding how long to keep data. The Records Management Policy contains the retention schedules.
Our document outlines retention periods for various types of information, in line with best practice advice from the Information and Recocords Manangement Society (IRMS) and DfE, which aims to help schools when deciding how long they should retain data.
