Who we are


Testimonials

Gateacre Community Comprehensive School

Paul Coulthard - Head of ICT

The eSafe 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 eSafe 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 eSafe’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 eSafe 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.

Mike Robinson - Head of IT Resources

When we looked to procure the eSafe Forensic Monitoring Service, the business case for the purchase was presented to Senior Leadership as requiring core budget project funding. We took this approach as Safeguarding is seen as a critical element of student pastoral support and as we devote a significant amount of resource in maintaining high levels of Safeguarding, it was viewed as an establishment wide issue rather than simply an ICT department issue.
