- CCIS client records are archived for 12 months following the upper limit of the cohort age (age 19 or up to 25 with SEND) and then subsequently fully deleted from the database within 36 months.
In addition, those groups that would benefit from increased retention and monitoring, such as care leavers and those engaging with additional services (SEND), may have their retention period increased to allow access to services. Archived data is fully deleted within 36 months to allow for subject access requests, reinstatement of clients not previously identified as SEND, court proceedings (cases) and reporting requirements.
