I think this is going off topic if you want to talk about confidentiality and data protection issues then you should really start a new thread. This thread is about licensing of SIMS and I took some time to make (what I feel is) a very important point. I haven't had any significant contribution reply or input on this point. The fact that Capita is ripping schools off for millions across the ccontry evokes little or no response... I don't get it is no one interested in where or taxes are going?
