URGENT: PRIMARY SCHOOLS (+some others) AFFECTED BY DATABASE DIAGNOSTICS - DO NOT RUN
Due to the important nature of this for Primary Schools and those using Primary Curriculum, posting this notice from SupportNet
URGENT Database diagnostics removing primary curriculum – patch available
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.
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 will restore removed primary curriculum.
AVAILABILITY Patches 15372 and 15463 should be requested from the Service Desk to be authorised from SOLUS.
LINKED SOLUTION Further details are available in KB106631.
