Exactly as above except we have a signing out sheet on a clipboard per year group. Pupils can't get out of school without going through reception so it works quite well. In the event of a fire pupils assemble by tutor group and fire marshalls sweep their assigned area to ensure the building has been evacuated.

With your proxy/smoothwall box/other kit needed to talk to the outside world going up in flames?

I've seen *Primary* schools with a laminated class list - teacher does the electronic registration and simultaneously updates that list with washable (not too washable) pen at the same time. Laminated list lives on wall inside one of those cheap transparent A4 wallet thingies and goes outside with them when alarm goes off.
All the logic in that works for me.

On a similar note, does anyone have an electronic signing in for staff and/or visitors? If so what do you do fire reg wise in that case?
I ask as we're currently looking into such a thing. My thought was a dedicated receipt printer connected to a big red button or in an ideal world the fire alarm.

We're having this at the moment, i was looking at getting ID cards with RFID chips in them and staff scanning themselves in, then in the event of a fire download this list to a tablet/pda/smartphone or print it so we can check staff off. At the moment we have an In/Out sign in board with peoples names but staff are a little lax with signing themselves in and it's a pain then carrying these boards outside

Definitely worth checking out inVentry - nicely packaged system for visitor management, and handles staff / pupils too... It was designed by a school Network Manager, so is built specifically for schools...

We've designed one in house in php and sql so it's just the hardware we're looking for.

It would probably be cheaper to implant children with rfid tags and sensors on all entraces.......

We have ID cards for staff, visitors and sixth form. We use some software called TimeNet which links the swiping machines into the fire alarm system. As soon as the alarm sounds it auto prints a register to a printer in reception. Works well here

Cheaper, but less ethical? Lol

We are a small place and have laminated sheets by the DHM office. Tutors know who is around and if someone is not there are then checked with the signout sheets that admin hold.
