New Case Study - Beaucroft School

Beaucroft is a Foundation Special School in Wimborne, Dorset dedicated to 150 children, aged 4 to 19 who have learning difficulties.

Managing the increasing volumes of paperwork in any school environment is critical yet more paper is produced in a Special Educational Needs (SEN) school.
Beaucroft School was storing documents in the roof as there was no more space for filing cabinets. If information had to be provided to Local Authorities, Law Courts or other organisations, paper stores in multiple locations needed to be searched and sometimes the document could not be found.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, schools are required to maintain a retention schedule to determine the length of time that records need to be retained and the action that should be taken when they are of no further use. At Beaucroft school, financial information relating to staff must be kept until the age of 85, children's paperwork until the age of 25 and accounting information is retained for 6 years.

Where lengthy retention periods are attached to records, converting paper to digital is essential to enable data to be stored and shared, sometimes at very short notice.

Sharon Morris, School Business Manager explained "We initially considered handling the project ourselves but realised we had neither the time or the resources. Copyrite understands the school and our business processes. 75 boxes of paperwork were scanned onto CD with indexing information for easy and fast retrieval. We now have an on-going paper to digital process with Copyrite; any paper documents that need to be scanned and indexed go directly to Copyrite."
