The Synergy Admissions and Transfers module manages the admissions and appeals processes across all schools and phases from nursery to secondary, along with transfers and in-year admissions. It records details of school capacities, applications for places, decisions and automatic allocations based on specified criteria against admissions policies. Synergy provides a powerful and flexible search and selection process, so school place applications can be quickly retrieved and updated.

Parent Portal

The Synergy Parent Portal provides an online application portal for parents to apply for school places. Using a step-by-step process, parents and carers can apply for as many places as the local authority supports. The process can be easily customised – no technical knowledge is required, as pages are fully editable and can even apply corporate branding. The responsive styling enables parents and carers to also apply via their smartphone or tablet.

School admissions

Synergy's School Admissions module allows schools to view all pupil applications to their school online and apply ranking decisions in real time. Applications can be ranked against the school’s individual over-subscription criteria.

Schools have real-time visibility of applications and can easily see key statistics about them, for example the number of first choice applicants and the latest number of applications to help them plan and budget resource.

The list is automatically updated into the Synergy Admissions module giving admissions teams’ immediate access to school ranked lists.

Electronic data exchange

The Electronic Data ExchangeModule (EDEM) utilises user friendly wizard-based tools to handle the import and export of all Department for Education prescribed files.
