    Contrary to popular belief, a LARGE amount of the working is hosted in the school, not externally or in the cloud. It is a good system they have, and very little is different from other systems I have seen. Infact the only difference I could spot (from the tour) was that they use MS Lync with the other academies in their system, whereas others all use a joined sharepoint system. (Although I may be wrong)

    We use Lync and SharePoint across all academies, there's a number of systems we share and alot of innovation goes on, thats just one of the reasons why we are the best performing bunch of academies in the country.

    In essence it's shared common infrastructure (Active Directory, Exchange, Sharepoint, Lync, more to come); if you're part of a Federation there's no point in re-inventing the wheel at each site - the model still allows for uniqueness and innovation at local sites and positively encourages sharing of best practice across the group.

    Harris Merton getting slammed right now on Newsnight!

    Quick everyone look at BBC 2 on the normal television!

    Newsnight are using Harris Academy Merton as a way to discuss how the "quest for the 5 A-Cs at GCSE" is tempting academies to take pupils off the roll without having to exclude them - hence, the GCSE figures still look good, (since average goes up if you don't count those pupils who take zero GCSEs) but the exclusion rate doesn't go up.


    It's not having a go at Harris specifically, but it's interesting how fudging your figures now has a massive financial incentive attached - MIS expert's salaries to increase this year hmmmm.....

    This is going right off topic. Please start a new thread if you wish to discuss anything other than the job

    Information on the job there is a blue print set down for how an academy will function. All systems will be deployed to this model and this is what you will be supporting.
