SIMS Autumn Upgrade
The SIMS Autumn Release is now due and is being made available by Capita from Thursday 1 November 2018.
All schools will require this upgrade as it contains software changes required to enable schools to generate the School Spring Census. We are planning to apply this upgrade to our Centrally Hosted schools during the Scheduled Downtime on Saturday 8 December to ensure all Autumn Censuses have been completed and approved by the DfE.
A few changes to mention regarding this upgrade are:
- The ability to export Grade Sets and User Defined Elements in Programs created in one school and then import them into another school.
- In the SEN area the old S (Statement) code is no longer active when adding/editing SEN
- Improvements continue to be made to the facility to delete historical data to comply with GDPR. Additional areas of data will be available to be deleted. Also, a new bulk delete option, to delete ALL student data (although not the student record itself as this is still being developed).
