Single Central Record
SINGLE CENTRAL RECORD STATEMENT
It is a statutory requirement specified by the Department for Education (DfE) that all schools maintain a live document called the Single Central Record (SCR). All schools within The Four Cs MAT use a standard SCR template.
The School Inspection Handbook (November 2019) expects all schools to maintain a Single Central Record detailing checks and vetting carried out on all staff working with students. ‘All staff’ includes teachers, support staff, Trustees, Governors, supply staff, agency staff, peripatetic and volunteers. Staff on site employed by external agencies are recorded on the SCR if working with students.
Only HR staff enter and collect the required information during the recruitment process. All details are kept securely in line with the The Data Protection Act 2018 (GDPR) and information will not be disclosed to external parties without staff consent. Data collected on the Single Central Record is available for you to view on the document below.
