Central Person Store

Managing data and entities effectively

The Civica Education Suite has been developed around a Central Person Store. This provides us with the ability to track individuals and their involvement with one or more schools. We can look at a single person and see what roles they currently hold or have held across all the schools that are part of a single CES deployment. This is important because it provides you with a clean data and comprehensive and accurate information about all the individuals that your school or schools are dealing with.

This core information flows seamlessly into all other applications integrated with Civica Education Suite, providing a single point of truth while ensuring all your systems are up to date.

CE Central Person Store has a person centric design matched with efficient data structures which underpin the Civica Education Suite. It also includes a front-end web application which provides tools to manage duplicate person records.

The Civica Community Portal provides a secure platform to seamlessly share relevant and up-to-date information with your wider community within your network of schools. It acts as the gateway between the schools’ internal workflows, processes and data and the school’s outside community (e.g. caregivers and students) - removing the need for paper-based communications.

  • School news and notifications
  • Student information, including absences, behaviour, timetable, events 
  • Online payments and payment plans
  • Online enquiries and applications for prospective parents
