Records Management Toolkit for Schools
The Information Management Toolkit for Schools has been created to assist schools to manage their information in line with the current legislative frameworks.
Module 1 consists of the base toolkit designed to assist schools under local authority control in their compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Module 2 consists of additional information which is designed to assist Academies in their compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and other business requirements. (In development)
Module 3 consists of additional information which is designed to assist independent schools to manage their records in line with legislative requirements. (In development)
The Information Management Toolkit for Schools is being made available to schools free of charge in pdf format. The Toolkit is available in MSWord format at no additional charge to members of the IRMS and at a fixed charge to non-members of the IRMS. For more details about this please contact IRMS (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All questions, suggestions and amendments to the toolkit should be sent to email@example.com. We will only undertake to answer questions from IRMS members, so please make sure that you have quoted your IRMS membership number when sending the question.
The Information Management Toolkit for Schools is designed as guidance and should not be quoted to users as being a “standard”. All local authorities should seek the advice of their own legal departments before using the toolkit. Local authorities should not refer members of the public to the IRMS for clarification about the toolkit. The IRMS is not a public body and therefore is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000. All requests for information relating to the toolkit used by individual authorities must be addressed by that authority.
