Recommended Posts

I'm sure I've seen the answer to this posted,but am in a hurry & can't find it so please excuse me for reposting. Can anyone tell me what' s the recommended time to keep children's registration docs after they've left?

 

Thank you!

This was discussed but I cant link it for you. I think there are loads of different answers to this. I've heard anything from 3 years to 21 years! Other stuff like insurance documents and finance stuff, I think is 40 years!! In reality though, especially when space is limited we keep our childrens records until the box is full, and then start shredding it to make room for the latest. :D

Well some of the children concerned are now over 10 years old so I might start shredding too! Thanks Rea!

It would be interesting to see whether my childrens primary still have records. The oldest left 4 years ago. I do know when I was organising a school reunion we went to our secondary school and they didnt have anything. This was 10 years ago and we'd been left 15 years. What use are old records going to be to someone anyway? I've never really thought about it :o:D

I was told from ofsted, that apart from legal documents, accident/incident book, that they can be destroyed from the date of your last ofsted inspection.

If I kept everything, I wouldn't have room for toys let alone the children.

 

What happens when new leaders/committee take over. The last leader from my setting kept no records/ incident details, never found any paye, tax etc. Only thing I found was a 2000 ofsted inspection.

 

How can they seriously expect us to keep it all.

hi all,

 

dont know if all county councils do this, but in norfolk, they have a list of times documentation should be kept covering all education, from early years, primary and even adult education. mainly on legal stuff rather than children's records.

 

maybe you could contact your LEA or direct to your council for further information.
