Child safe record keeping

The Final Report of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse made five record keeping recommendations, including one specific recommendation that non-government schools be required to comply with minimum standards in relation to the creation, maintenance and disposal of records relevant to child safety and wellbeing, including child sexual abuse.

In response to this, the Australian Society of Archivists developed their Records Retention and Disposal Schedule, 2nd Edition, released in April 2018. The resource will assist people in non-government schools who work with risk management, compliance requirements, records management and archives, and is designed to help promote good governance in organisations.

NSW State Archives and Records has also compiled and published a list of useful resources, including links to relevant online learning, to assist government and non-government organisations in implementing all five of the record keeping recommendations.
