What is TALAXY?
TALAXY provides a convenient platform for staff to log, manage, and monitor student information, while parents and students can access their individual school profiles. It offers a modular approach, allowing users to choose the desired features, such as attendance tracking, behaviour monitoring, homework management, grading, exams, seating plans, extra classes, detentions, timetabling, communication via text/email, room and resource booking, parents' evening organisation, payments, and more.
TALAXY incorporates various intervention options, including automated notices and push notifications for different behaviours, positive news, and homework assignments. With over 25 years of experience and leveraging our previous products, PARS and INSIGHT, TALAXY is a cloud-based Progressive Web App designed specifically for schools. It caters to individual needs, streamlines processes through automation and saves time.
As a comprehensive solution for educational institutions, TALAXY eliminates the need for multiple costly systems by providing a unified login for all features. Its seamless integration allows for efficient tracking and analysis of data, including graphical representations for key information. Whether analysing data within a single school or across a trust, TALAXY serves as an umbrella solution. For example, it enables the analysis of attendance data for all Year 7 pupils within a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT).
Users can access TALAXY with a verified email account, such as Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, or a Management Information System (MIS) ID. The software is cost-effective, user-friendly, intuitive, and secure. It is compatible with any web browser or device and supports multiple MIS, although TALAXY can be used independently as an MIS in its own right for smaller establishments or those with variable timetables, such as a Pupil Referral Units.
TALAXY is a cloud-based solution hosted on secure Amazon Web Servers, ensuring data protection and reliability.
Staff access daily and parents and students can access as much as they need to if applicable.

In addition to providing login access for parents and pupils, TALAXY offers the option for schools to collaborate with external organisations such as Local Authorities (LAs), Social Services, caregivers, and CAFF (Child and Family Focus) by creating secure logins. These authorised contacts can view specific information determined by the school for the relevant children. For instance, the LA attendance department can log in to view attendance data for Looked After Children (LAC) exclusively. This feature enables quick access to important data and saves time.
The school retains control over the functionality and access levels granted to users through a straightforward permissions management feature. All users are required to undergo verification in TALAXY before being granted login access. This ensures a secure and reliable environment for data access and collaboration.
