school record

Quick Reference

Maintained schools are required to keep records of pupils' academic achievements and progress, including results of national curriculum standard assessments at the end of Key Stages 1, 2, and 3. The record for each pupil accompanies them through their compulsory schooling, passing from teacher to teacher in the primary phase, and from school to school as they progress through the system or move to a different area. Under the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998, pupils and parents are entitled to see what is recorded in the pupil's record. Most school records are now kept in electronic form.

Subjects: Education.
