AnyComms Plus

Important information about the replacement of the AnyComms system

The previous (desktop) version of AnyComms has now been taken out of use and has been replaced by AnyComms Plus. The new version is web-based and therefore works in an entirely different way to the old version. It is straightforward to use as well as being completely secure for the transmission of confidential and sensitive information.
The main features of the new system are:

  • 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
  • Each school has two accounts – one for Head and one for Admin (linked to the respective email accounts).
  • Access to the system is via a web page ( and therefore available through any computer with internet access and 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 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).
  • Users receive an alert (through Head and Admin emails) when a new file is waiting to be downloaded.
  • Users can see a history of the files they have sent (uploaded) or received (downloaded).

    The guidance documents for SIMS schools will show the new process for submitting specific returns and general guidance can also be found on the Grid here:
