full paper Abstract: This paper reports on identification needs within a UK secondary school environment. The motivation behind the final biometric enabled system choice is discussed and a system design is presented. How the system will operate is portrayed using a typical school day for user groups (Students, Teachers, Administration and Parents). As enrollment for the system is non-mandatory, privacy concerns for user groups influence acceptability of the system. The paper discusses legal protections which help form the parameters of the system design and recommends further management policies that will enhance usability for each user group.
