Data Collection & Business Information Team

AnyComms Plus

This system is for the transmission of confidential and sensitive information between Herts schools and between Herts Local Authority services and schools (both directions).
It is intended for the transfer of regular and statutory returns (e.g. School Census) rather than ad hoc transfers (which are more appropriate to Schoolsfx or HertSFX).  Features of the system:-

  • Each school has two accounts – one for Head and one for Admin (linked to their respective email accounts).
  • Access to the system is via a web page ( and therefore available through any computer with internet access - there is no software to be installed.
  • To login users require a username, password and memorable word. Users can reset a forgotten password provided they know their user name and memorable word.
  • Schools can send (upload) files to specific services of the local authority (e.g. Data Collection or Safe Staffing).
  • Schools can send files to the Head or Admin account of any other school or organisation in the system - although it is not to be used instead of the DfE’s S2S system for CTF files.
  • Services within the local authority can send files to schools (Head or Admin).
  • Services within the local authority can also send a form (referred to as a “Pre-populated Form) or questionnaire for schools (Head or Admin) to complete.
  • Users receive an alert (through Head and Admin emails) when a new file is waiting to be downloaded. (This can be set through the “My Account” option when logged in to the system).
  • Users can see a history of the files they have sent (uploaded) or received (downloaded).
  • The guidance documents for SIMS schools will show the process for submitting specific returns.
  • Files remain in the system for 12 months and can be redownloaded if required.
