CUSTOMERS AFFECTED Any primary school that has used primary curriculum to create schemes (e.g. Maths or Literacy teaching groups) that are derived from registration groups.
PROBLEM Running Database Diagnostics will remove primary curriculum schemes, so they will no longer be visible via Focus | School | Academic Structure | Edit Curriculum Structure or Curriculum Assignment by Scheme. Teaching groups will still be visible within marksheet filters and you will be able to view the pupil memberships of teaching groups via Focus | School | Academic Structure | Curriculum Assignment by Pupil.
SOLUTION Patch 15372 MUST be applied BEFORE running Database Diagnostics, to prevent removal of primary curriculum schemes. This patch prevents future removal of primary curriculum. It does not replace the removed curriculum scheme. All schools already using primary curriculum should apply patch 15372. For primary (and other) schools not yet using Primary Curriculum, the issue will be rectified in the Spring 2011 release.
It can be applied to other databases, e.g. Specials, PRUs, Middle-deemed secondaries, in case you are not sure of use of primary curriculum.
Patch 15463 has also been created to restore any removed primary curriculum so it should therefore be applied if Database Diagnostics has removed them and you have applied either Patch 15372 or the SIMS 2011 Spring release.
AVAILABILITY Patches 15372 has been authorised to all Local Authorities, Single Site Schools and Independent Schools via SOLUS.
Patch 15463 should be requested from the Service Desk.
