Newham Simplifies School Admissions With New App 

By [email protected] - 23rd February 2015 - 17:05

Newham Council has one of the largest number of school pupils in London. Recognising this, Newham has developed a âSchool Locatorâ app, which integrates with its existing admissions system and is powered using the councilâs definitive index of addresses, each of which contains a geographic co-ordinate giving a precise location on the map, together with a Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN). The app enables the rapid calculation of accurate catchment and distance information for each pupil and school preference. The same system is used by the school admission team and parents, which enhances transparency and clear communication about the process.
