Pupil linked to wrong records.

If you have imported a CTF for pupils joining your school, that included parents or other contacts with a name that matched exactly to a contact record already in your database, the applicant may have been linked incorrectly to this person and some data may have changed.”

Have Capita ever considered indexing the Pupils on a unique record id and checking for duplicates. Or whatever indian intern they 'hired' on to write the software.
