Single central record

School records 389x267.jpg

The recruitment of staff and deployment of resources to ensure that a school runs smoothly and without risk is at the heart of good and effective leadership.

The single central record is simply a repository to house all the information, data and records that you, as the school's leader, need in order to satisfy yourself and, more importantly, others – such as Ofsted – that all your recruitment and deployment checks and balances have been carried out correctly and in full, and that they have been verified appropriately.

Having a complete single central record is a sign of a healthy school that has its house in order. It's also particularly reassuring to parents, staff and other scrutineers.
