    AHHH you mean seating plans for classrooms? Rather than exams? ;o) Sorry for confusion!

    Did anyone come up with a clear way to create these seating plans from sims? I tried to look for the article stated in support net but couldn't find it (SupportNet - Room Seating Plan with Photo and Data (39372))

    IMO, your dedication to the job and quest of ensuring teachers teach is without doubt beyond mine.
    I stand in awe of teachers who managed in times gone by with chalk and a squeeky 'non white' board.

    The BIG question for us though is Data Protection. This service is offered FOC; all you have to do is put the name, picture, SEN status and behaviour of all your children into our system and in return you get a wonderful tool FOR FREE?? This worries me as with no contract there is no DPA clause to look at and despite the lame "it's OK 'cos we used HTTPS" explainations in the FAQ the offer seems too good to be true.

    Particularly scary is when you see this Class Charts data set available | EDUKEY (Edukey are the company behind Class Carts) - they are harvesting the data.
    @clareq - what has your experience of this been like?

    I have had very little to do with it, other than dealing with a couple of staff who wanted help printing from it. My boss found it, and did the "due diligence". I'll mention your find to him on Monday, when he's back from BETT.

    PARS Connect has seating plans with photos etc. It links to SIMS and is very good for all aspects of behaviour management. Not sure if it can be used without having PARS though.

    Funny, I actually mentioned this to @CAM at BETT.

    Not sure about Class charts if there's no contract and you're uploading sensitive date. You could be breaching all kinds of regs.

    I found this the other day in my favorites, not exactly what was requested, but could be useful as part of a solution. Quite clever, it's tool 6 Tools for Schools | dataeducator
