Online Safety

Our Online Safety Monitoring services help schools to meet appropriate filtering and monitoring guidance by providing you with an “Active/Proactive” technology monitoring platform – the highest level of monitoring as suggested by the UK Safer Internet Centre.

Department for Education guidance “Keeping Children Safe in Education”, revised in September 2023, states:

“Whilst it is essential that governing bodies and proprietors ensure that appropriate filtering and monitoring systems are in place, they should be careful that “over blocking” does not lead to unreasonable restrictions as to what children can be taught regarding online teaching and safeguarding.” 

How does it work?

Our Online Safety Monitoring services are based upon monitoring software tools. Windows, Chromebook, iPad and Mac devices in your school are monitored and all potentially harmful digital content, activity or behaviour is captured. Alerts and reports are sent to your designated safeguarding lead. The services are based on software from Securus (standard) and Smoothwall (plus) and include access to a range of training material including documentation and webinars.

Standard or Plus?

We offer two levels of service: Monitoring Standard (IT30) and Monitoring Plus (IT31). With the Monitoring Plus system a highly trained team monitors your school alerts and notifies your Safeguarding Team of any risks.

“IT30 provides me, as the DSL, complete piece of mind. It provides me with the security of knowing that all online activity is being monitored on a continual basis – wherever school devices are being used. The efficient service alerts us as soon as a high-level breach occurs so we, as a school, can act upon it almost immediately.

For lower-level breaches we can analyse the logs on an easy-to-use portal. Being such a comprehensive service saves me, as a DSL, a huge amount of time but offers the reassurance that we have robust online monitoring to keep our children safe online.”
