The only time you would ever want to delete a child or an adult record from this database is if there has been a mistaken entry.
If the child is no longer attending the service, you should carry out the process for withdrawing a child from the service. This is because the software is designed to maintain past enrolments as well as current ones. Likewise, adults associated with a child who is no longer attending the service are still maintained in the database.
However, if there has been an incorrect entry, there is a simple way to delete a child's or an adult's records.
To ensure that the records are as accurate as possible. This will maintain the integrity of the data and thus the integrity of the information that it generates.

Choose the child you wish to delete from the Draw Down Selection List.
