CTF issue message appearing following the Autumn Upgrade

Spring school Census

If a school has already taken the patch and/or confirmed against the CTF pop-up boxes they will not be asked to re-tick the boxes when the Autumn release is taken.

Please note: schools which did not take the CTF patches and did not confirm that they had taken the appropriate action for CTF (including those schools who do not use CTF) will now experience the CTF pop-boxes as part of the Autumn release. Once the school has taken the appropriate action for CTF they can simply tick the boxes and they will not reoccur.
