    We dont have someone called a 'data manager' as such but there is someone who manages SIMS day to day. She isnt above or below the network manager, she reports to the deputy head as well

    We still have to do the technical bits of SIMS, and help with upgrades, and the ICT Co-ordinator still does some admin bits of it, but she does the majority - running and printing reports, setting up users and permissions, liasing with LEA SIMS team - would be a nightmare if we had to do it all. Its a nice arrangement for all concerned

    We don't have a single person who does this role, as I don't think it has yet been identified as a problem area for us. However, we do have various roles defined for managing the MIS - eg. our Assistant Head deals with many SIMS issues (implementing new uses of it, ensuring reports are going smoothly etc...), we have another member of the admin team who work specifically on SIMS.net and assessment manager to deal with data for teachers, offsted and the DfES (or whatever they're called) and finally myself as NM who simply does the 'nuts and bolts' of the system - ensuring it is up and running, patched etc...

    I personally think we need a full time SIMS.net manager, and may bring it up at some point in the future with my boss.

    With regards to seniority, I think they'd likely be equal to each other (NM and DM) and both be reporting to the same person.

    Thanks everyone - I brought this up with our leadership team because I am doing more and more SIMS stuff linked to admin rather than just the network nuts and bolts. It seems I am not alone
