Records management policy

​​Records represent a vital asset, which support the daily functions of Education Scotland. We recognise that effective management of our records is essential.

Our approach to information and records management is underpinned by six key principles set out in our Records Management Policy.

The policy defines our commitment to creating and managing information and records efficiently, making them accessible where possible, protecting and storing them securely and disposing of them safely at the right time.

Our policy takes account of the need to adhere to the principles of the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011.
