There has been concern for some time that schools are often left with limited options for sending sensitive reports and documents to a range of professionals. The London Grid for Learning (LGfL) has now, following requests, developed their USO secure file exchange (USO FX) to enable schools to send and receive a document securely not only to other schools in London but now to other professionals not on the broadband network. This is a really helpful development. (Note: school data should still be sent via s2s).
