Goddard Inquiry opens

Letter on record retention sent to institutions

The Goddard Inquiry was opened on 9 July and in her opening statement, Judge Goddard emphasised the importance of retaining records. She confirmed that she has written to 243 institutions including local authorities and religious organisations on the subject of retaining records and, at the opening, confirmed that the content of those letters should be taken to apply to all institutions who have had responsibility for the care of children. ISC would therefore strongly urge all schools to read the letter and take any steps necessary.
