We work with Ofsted as a leading provider of schools based and early years’ inspections services, as well as being a major provider of management information systems. We also provide self-evaluation software for schools, allowing school leaders to benefit from evaluation expertise on a continual basis.
Management Information Systems
Our Synergy system is being used by over half of Children’s Services departments in local authorities across the UK. We recently launched our Early Intervention and Safeguarding system, to provide child social care workers with a single view of a child, in line with the recommendations of the Munro report.
Synergy in Schools has been designed to help authorities that are looking to create a single view of a child. Integrating with our Synergy suite, it ensures critical information can be seen quickly and accurately by all the necessary stakeholders with the power to intervene quickly and act upon the information available.
Review and evaluation
Our review and evaluation resources are successful internationally. We work with the Abu Dhabi Education Council and Metropolitan District of Nashville, to help improve performance in schools.
Our Services to Schools consultants offer advice, support and training, to help schools develop outstanding business functions, including finance, HR, governor services and recruitment. We have also developed Framework+, a robust, online, evidence-based, self-evaluation tool, aligned with the latest inspection framework.
- Our K2 asset management system is being used to monitor and plan resources in all state schools in England and New Zealand.

The IMLS Framework
We are part of the Information Management and Learning Services (IMLS) framework. The IMLS framework was created to give schools and local authorities support in choosing the School MIS and Learning Platform that is right for them and ensure they get the best possible deal. The framework is provided by the Department for Education to enable schools and local authorities to procure their school MIS and Learning Platforms.
