Protecting the health, safety and welfare of students and staff in today’s digital world is a difficult task. The opportunities for unsafe and harmful behaviour are magnified, and meeting your statutory safeguarding obligations is an increasing challenge.

At e-Safe education, it is our mission to provide a secure framework to exploit the vast educational resources of the Internet and digital environment whilst delivering a world-class service to identify and manage safeguarding issues as they arise.

e-Safe manages the risk of exposure to safeguarding risk and provides early visibility of inappropriate behaviour via sophisticated, multi-lingual, threat detection technology and a unique specialist incident review, assessment and escalation service.

Testimonials

Blessed Hugh Farringdon School

Terry Bartrum - Network Manager

e-Safe can be fully customised to meet our own specific school requirements; so we get to define how strictly we want the system to operate and e-Safe manage the settings on our behalf. For example we don’t have the image filters turned up to the highest level for certain classes such as art and other lessons, so as not to restrict searches

Gateacre Community Comprehensive School

Paul Coulthard - Head of ICT

The e-Safe solution is a cornerstone of our e-safety strategy. Senior Leadership took the decision to introduce Web 2.0 activities into the curriculum and we chose to move to the e-Safe Forensic Monitoring Service to ensure that we were able to provide the best possible Safeguarding measures. Whilst we had the technical resource in house, it would have meant taking technicians off important ICT work to do work that they are really not experienced to do. Now we have e-Safe’s Forensic experts reviewing the data, we can guarantee that nothing is missed or worse still, misinterpreted. As a result, we are confident that any issues are flagged to the pastoral or behavioural teams on a regular and timely basis. Just a week after the service had been deployed, a young female student posted disturbing content on her social networking page relating to self-harm. The e-Safe team immediately flagged this with us and within an hour our Child Protection Officer was able to talk to the student and her parents to resolve the issue. In the past, this incident may not have been picked up until the Monday morning which could have had serious consequences for the girl over the weekend. Feedback from staff and governors has been that the service paid for itself from that one incident alone.

Blackburn College

Andrew Pickles - Head of Students Services

The College uses e-Safe to inform the personal development, behaviour and welfare agenda, and promote pro-active and positive messages about personal safety, well-being and pastoral support. It helps me to identify themes that have become part of the group tutorial offer and influence our ‘early help’ and prevention provision. An example is the positive ‘in-reach’ activities that are provided by external agencies as a result of the feedback from e-Safe alerts relating to such as obsessive behaviours and impact on lifestyle, anonymous sexualised behaviours, inappropriate use of social media, abusive comment, body image, financial support, criminal activity, stress and anxiety.
