Supporting you with the effective delivery of local education authority services

With a demanding workload of education services to deliver alongside the need to safeguard children and support them to positive outcomes, local authority education teams are often faced with conflicting priorities and limited resources.

Used by over 100 UK local authorities, our flexible, intuitive software helps to relieve that pressure, enabling them to meet their statutory and service responsibilities more efficiently and effectively by connecting data securely for more informed decisions and early intervention.

With a wide range of time-saving tools and providing a single, comprehensive core record for each child, teams instantly have the information they need to safeguard children and young people, to monitor attendance and attainment, and support children with special educational needs and disabilities. In addition, our virtual schools head solution tracks the progression and attainment of pupils in care, highlighting where any intervention is required.

Our software can also support teams with administering staff development and training, completing statutory staff returns, managing school governor processes and planning for future school places.
