Pippa on the continuing non-appearance of school fingerprint guidance:
1. Either the guidelines are going to be issued in the form of a trilogy, due to length of time taken to write, and will appear not just on BECTA’s website but also on Amazon.
2. There are no guidelines being written.
3. There were guidelines but Jim Knight’s dog chewed them up, honest.
4. It’s a legal nightmare and the Department of Education, the ICO and BECTA are simply not issuing them yet due to legal complications.
