Format for user-friendly data

E-learning and management specialists Serco Learning is launching an information management system for schools. Serco Learning Progresso promises to convert data on attainment, attendance and behaviour into a user-friendly format to save time on searching and retrieving statistics. It is designed to integrate into existing software and will be available from late next year. For details, contact Serco Learning on 01332 660555 or see www.sercolearning.comproductsprogresso

Ofsted framework in practice

Naace, the association for ICT teachers, is running a course on the implications of the new Ofsted framework. Bookings are open for the one-day event, which will look at new emphases in classroom practice, implications for tracking achievement, and e-safety and data security. The session takes place in Leeds on February 10 and is aimed at primary school senior leaders and subject leaders, and local authority advisers and consultants. For details, go to www.naace.co.uk

No bar to prison records

Records of more than 4,000 19th-century prisoners have gone online in a new resource for primary schools. Details of prisoners who served sentences at Inveraray Jail in Argyll, now a visitor attraction, include names and occupations, crimes, sentences and information on transportation. The published records are designed to be used with searchable databases, such as Microsoft Excel, and transportation details link to those available in Queensland, Australia. For details, go to www.inverary jail.co.uk.
