Link2ICT Monitoring Service
Monitoring online activity is a time-consuming task – and one where attention to detail is essential. Just one word typed by a child or young person could indicate a potential safeguarding concern that needs a timely intervention.
“We were aware that we needed support to pick up safeguarding issues, particularly those concerned with internet use. We’ve now been using Link2ICT’s Monitoring Service for a couple of months and it has already been really useful, resulting in some important issues being highlighted. We have been able to discover online activity which, without this service, would not have been identified as pupils being at risk.
One of the most serious incidents it highlighted, involved grooming of a student and would have had very serious consequences indeed. We were able to interview the pupil alongside the police and therefore safeguard that young person.
The service has added an extra dimension which enables us to reach even more students and we feel confident that we are no longer missing any gaps. The service is very straightforward, and has not required any training or additional support. Because of its ease of use and with the successful results it has already provided, we would definitely recommend the Link2ICT Monitoring Service to other schools.”
