You're thinking too logically. This is the UK education system we're talking about. Hell the government loses half the populations details in the post - this isn't going to be much more advanced than a PC sitting in an office.

Not only that - but who has the time to "quickly and effectively print data off from the system showing who was on site" when there is a bloody fire alarm.
