Single Central Record

Single Central Record

It is a statutory requirement (Keeping Children Safe in Education, Paragraph 143) for all schools and academies to keep and maintain:

  • a single central record (SCR) of recruitment
  • vetting checks for their whole workforce (including volunteers, supply staff and teacher trainees on salaried routes)

Academies will also need to keep the same information for all members of the proprietor body.
