What about using the Quick note field that already exists - lots of schools use this for example with a simple M to mean "monitoring" or could be used as you have asked re medical condition/note. On training we put "hamster died" when we demonstrate the field in training!!

That's okay, but then you have to be in student details and then you're only 1 hot link click away from the full medical record. the problem is to make it more accessible in a full class list format, and ideally linked to the student.

The info needs to be available first hand, like a highlight on a paper register. Or teachers need to be able to add their own emphasis on students so it comes up like behaviour. Hopefully as they added the behaviour today and other useful info, they will add in the medical notes, which is really important too. For example, we have many many students with severe allergies, to food, dust, the sun(!) and all staff should know immediately that there is a cause for concern, not have to run a report or check each students file manually.

Vik, I soooo like this idea! I have done an AM training course, but it's something I would really like to look into (at the moment my school doesn't use Assessment Manager other than for End of Key Stage recording). The problem I have is finding the time to do it! Life in a Primary School is never dull; the phone never stops ringing, there's always someone at the front door and someone else being sick!

I know primary can be v.hard, with very little time. AM7 is very powerful, but can take a while to setup correctly. It's good to do things in stages, there are a number of very useful threads on here with advice. If you can't find them get in touch, or do so anyway if you want and help. Setting up this important info marksheet would be a good way to give staff something useful, that will encourage them to use the system, rather than imposing something like recording grades that over time they will just come to hate.

The benefit to us is that we don't update the tests each year, which would impose a little maintenance on whoever sets it up.
