How are pre-admissions sent to Cypad?

Providing the pre-admissions are being imported into Schoolcomms (checkbox in Import Settings via Desktop > Management > Import Management > Edit Settings), then the pre-admission students will be made available for Cypad to pick up.

Data sync between Schoolcomms and Cypad

  • School members (if you use the Schoolcomms API) – 6am, 11am, 3pm, and 6pm each day.

Please be aware that parents of pre-admission students are not able to see the Lunch Money tab in School Gateway, so they are unable to view the lunch balance or make any pre-orders, but they are still able to make payments.

Once the pre-admissions show in Cypad, you can manually add pre-orders when necessary and the balance will be visible once the pupil is on role.
