SLP Service Disruption

We are currently experiencing issues that we believe have impacted the functionality and accessibility of the SLP service. We are trying to restore the service as quickly as possible, however you may experience intermittent problems when logging in. Please be persistent and continue to attempt logging in where possible. We will update you once the issue has been identified/resolved.

Disruption to SLP services today (20th December)

Due to the imminent decommission of the link that ran the old schools WAN internet connection, SCC ICT need to make some important network changes to the SLP environment to ensure continued service access.

The work involves making some network alterations, and while this work takes place there may be short periods of intermittent access to some SLP services (for example to iPost. some external public school websites and edcomms).

Apologies in advance if this important work affects you, it will be completed as quickly as possible.

Access to the ‘educ’ Microsoft Office 365 environment will remain unaffected during these changes; it will continue to work as normal.

DNS Servers On The Move

This message is intended for all technical staff.

With the cessation of the WAN internet link, various parts of the SLP back end infrastructure will shortly be undergoing maintenance.

This notice regards changes to our DNS hosting. For all schools with a “” you can stop reading here, we are looking after you!

For any other school who uses their own domain names that weren’t registered through us (things like domains that you’ve bought elsewhere), but have your Name Servers pointed to the SLP DNS servers, then you must take note.

Our DNS hosting service will very shortly be moving in to Azure, at which point domain Name Servers will need to be updated to the new location. For those domains that we own (i.e. domains) then we will be updating these domains for you, however if you have you own domain registered elsewhere, but are using our services, then please contact the ICT Helpdesk as soon as possible for information of what server settings you will need to update your DNS to.
