The annual Chief Inspector's report summarises the progress made by Lambeth schools, pupils and the school community in raising achievement throughout the academic year. It also serves as an evaluation of the Local Authority’s work, in partnership with schools, through its Education and Learning Strategy, to achieve priorities against annual targets and the council’s vision for excellent schools provision.

Retention of School records
A number of schools have contacted us in relation to the retention of school records.
There is advice on retention of GB records/school records in the Records Management Toolkit for Schools produced by the Information and Records Management Society:
This includes information about governing board papers, minutes etc from page 37, but unhelpfully it isn’t listed in the table of contents. Minutes should be kept permanently – in school for 7 years and then archived.
There is also advice on records management on the National Archives website: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/information-management/manage-information/
