Document management solutions for schools and colleges
The hectic summer term has finally drawn to a close and if you’re a headteacher or school administrator, the chances are that you’re looking forward to a well deserved rest! However, as you’re probably already aware, the long summer holidays pass incredibly quickly and before you know it, September and a new academic year will have rolled around. Many schools and colleges struggle to cope with and manage the amount of data they have to store and in view of the strict guidelines which now cover safeguarding and data use, having an efficient document management system could make all the difference.
Here at PDM we have designed a range of document management services, specially designed to help schools, colleges and universities manage and secure they way they handle and store data. In 2016 the Department of Education published a document entitled “Keeping children safe in education Statutory Guidance for schools and colleges.” This document outlined the responsibilities schools and colleges have when it comes to accurate record keeping, stating that: “all concerns, discussions and decisions made and the reasons for those decisions should be recorded in writing.” As a result, increasing numbers of schools and colleges have addressed the issue by using software designed to handle all aspects of safeguarding, child protection and a wide range of welfare issues from one central repository.
