I know it has been said before but I can't find the answers, can you please tell me how long we are supposed to keep our records for, i.e. accounts, accident book, attendance and child details. I am finally getting round to sorting things out after 12 months of retirement.

• Signed attendance registers – attendance registers are retained until the child is 21 years 3 months old in a file with all other information relating to the safeguarding and welfare requirements of the EYFS such as accident, injury and first aid forms. This information is retained (partly) to protect you from historic claims of abuse.


Accounts are an HMRC thing and it tells you here:

Thank you very much for that.

everything related to safeguarding and welfare = until the child is 21 years 3 months old.

Everything related to learning and development including photos = leaves with the child.

SOME LSCBs require cms to keep the 2 year progress checks - others don't comment.

I hope that helps :D
