>That would be a breach of DP would it not?

This would seem to be a breech of DP and GDPR, as it seems it is automatically linking the details of the new pupil Joe Smith with parent John Smith, to the pre-existing record of existing pupil Zoe Smith with parent John Smith.

Interestingly, at both my children's junior and secondary schools, I had to explicitly link my two children's records together, which would seem to indicate they aren't SIMS users...
