    This is the sort of information that is in SIMS that the school would like to keep.

    "The Data Protection Act 1998 stipulates that records should be kept for no longer than necessary.
    In each organisation, local records managers must ensure that records that are no longer required for business use are reviewed as
    soon as practicable under the criteria set out so that ill-considered destruction is avoided.
    The local review will determine whether records are to be selected for permanent preservation, destroyed, digitised to an electronic
    format or retained by the organisation for research or litigation purposes.
    Refer to the Retention Guidelines at the end of this document.
    Whatever decisions are made they need to be documented as part of a consistent and consistently applied records management
    policy within the organisation."

    Launcher

    SIMS Launcher still works in Windows 7 under 32-bit version. We've not got a 32-bit version of Win8 to test it....

    Tests your memory to get all the tweaks in place to make it work correctly
