Retention of School records
A number of schools have contacted us in relation to the retention of school records.
There is advice on retention of GB records/school records in the Records Management Toolkit for Schools produced by the Information and Records Management Society:
This includes information about governing board papers, minutes etc from page 37, but unhelpfully it isn’t listed in the table of contents. Minutes should be kept permanently – in school for 7 years and then archived.
There is also advice on records management on the National Archives website: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/information-management/manage-information/
