Link2ICT Safeguarding Suite
An integrated service to keep children safe in education. Managing all safeguarding concerns in both the real and digital world.
We all have a legal duty to safeguard young people and with the wide range of issues to be managed, it is crucial that a holistic view of all concerns is available to fully understand the context and risk.
Link2ICT's Safeguarding Suite supports this integrated, holistic view of safeguarding, ensuring all concerns are monitored, recorded and managed in an efficient and legally responsible manner.
What is MyConcern?
MyConcern® is a simple to use, safe and secure software for recording and managing all safeguarding concerns. The system enables all staff to record any safeguarding concern, safe in the knowledge that a proper record has been made and that their safeguarding lead has been automatically notified. It also equips the designated safeguarding lead to assess each concern and manage any ongoing action that needs to be taken.
MyConcern® was designed with the support of teaching professionals and meets (and often exceeds) all DfE statutory guidance and school inspection standards. It is constantly updated to reflect national good practice in schools and ’lessons learned’, including Serious Case Reviews.
Digital Monitoring Service
Following increasing demands to safeguard our children from online threats such as radicalisation, extremism, cyber bullying, pornography and grooming.
Link2ICT is continuously developing its safeguarding programme to ensure schools have all of the support they need to keep children safe in education. As well as the existing safeguarding solutions available to your school through Link2ICT (Antivirus, Encryption, Remote Backup and Content Monitoring software) we are pleased to present the latest offering in our safeguarding range - the Link2ICT Digital Monitoring Service.
This provides your school with the most comprehensive eSafety solution for keeping users safe online, while allowing access to all the benefits of the online world.
Futures Cloud (formerly known as Policy Central)
The eSafety of pupils is a key area for concern and a huge responsibility for the Head and Governors of any educational establishment.
Your ICT resources are a powerful and positive learning tool but there are risks involved.
The Every Child Matters agenda demands the safe keeping of children and directives emerging from government agencies are urging schools to look not only at filtering solutions within the school environment, but also at ways of monitoring and tracking what children are doing when using all school electronic resources.
Futures Cloud is designed to do just that - Simple software to Detect and Protect
With Futures Cloud, you can enforce an Acceptable Use Policy for all computer use within your school or Virtual Learning Environment. It helps you put a stop to inappropriate and harmful computer use, whether it involves just looking or active participation.
