Our integrated solutions sit at the heart of school management, covering everything from finances and parent payments to cashless catering management, HR and payroll.

Civica is a market leading specialist in software, technology and ICT services for the education sector. We work with over 7,000 schools, academies, colleges and libraries together with examination and professional awarding bodies – helping schools transform their back office and catering functions for the benefit of students, teachers, non-academic staff and the wider community. We understand the challenges you face every day, and we provide the technology to help you solve them. From speeding up the lunch queue, helping you to reduce waste and plan healthy, safe meals to producing complex financial reports, we can help. This saves you time and money, which you can invest in your students.

FinancialsLIVE, our cloud-optimised financial management software, is designed specifically for schools, academies and MATS. Using cloud technology means that the system is ideal for centralising finances. Not only can it grow with your organisation, but it also makes reporting across sites simple.

CivicaPay Education is a new parent payment solution built to help schools collect income for meals, trips and anything else they wish to sell. Powered by our trusted CivicaPay software, it helps schools generate income by providing an easy to manage, mobile-friendly storefront. Parents benefit from automatic top-up and SMS/email notifications.

Civica Cashless is our leading cashless catering software. With the latest pre-order technology, it can help schools increase sales, reduce waste and improve efficiency at lunchtime.

Our catering management software, Saffron, helps improve efficiency in the kitchen – helping schools and catering teams streamline processes, maintain compliance and make better decisions. With a paperless system, schools have better oversight of stock control, helping reduce waste and maximise revenue while protecting learners who have allergies. With staff costs being the single most expensive item in the school budget, its important that your HR processes are efficient and compliant. Our HR & Payroll solutions are focussed on the needs of schools and academies. To learn more, please visit

Civicas Education FinancialsLIVE gives me the best of both worlds: really useful reports that quickly give me the insight I need, plus the flexibility to export the data to Excel for further analysis. Other systems are generally too locked down to allow that.
