    As I understand it, they haven't deleted the student altogether, they've deleted behaviour information recorded against them - which is an area that any teacher would be able to access as part of their job. Maybe a good change request to make would be amending access rights so teachers can add incidents but only Heads of Year and SLT can delete them?

I'm sorry if that didn't with your approval.
    The original intent seemed to be driven more in terms of "can we prove they did it?", so although proving that someone hadn't deleted the records would prove they're innocent, I'd bet money the school wanted to gather evidence to support a dismissal for gross misconduct. Personally, in order to prove it either way, I'd want to see the records that were deleted, as, without full docs on how SIMS interacts with the database, deleting records per se may not be evidence of anything inappropriate anyway.

    cheers jinnantonnix - in my head while reading that i could hear the theme tune from 'mighty mouse' :P
    so, i do have transaction logs every few hours, and am going to increase the frequency. i've read elsewhere that the whole point is that you play them back onto a full backup, that's in full backup mode. is that any use in this case? could it show that someone viewed a record, just before the delete transaction?
