What format does everybody use for pupil logons ???
We are a primary school and over the years the LEA implemented a login system that comprises of alpha \ numeric code with the same for the password, as you can appreciate when your’ talking of 5 year old children just logging on can take the whole lesson.
This logon the follows them all the way through to leaving primary school, I am planning on changing the structure of the logons in the summer to the following;
Nursery – n (with no password)
Foundation - r (with no password)
Year 1 – y1 (with no password)
Year 2 – Chrstian Initial followed by surname e.g. asmith (with no password)
Year 3 upwards will have the same as year 2 pupils but with a password which will the follow them through to year 6. I did hear somewhere though that you were not allowed to use a pupils name as a logon has anybody else heard of this before I implement it ???
