For Vulnerable Young People In Care

Appropriate proactive monitoring

eSafe enables a local authority and care providers to effectively capture markers of safeguarding risk involving vulnerable young people in care.

Proactive monitoring of computer devices provided to children and young people in care is a valuable component to ensuring their safety and a useful barometer of the effectiveness of a Children’s Services strategy and intervention policy.

With many years experience of close cooperation with the multi agency teams and specialist care providers, eSafe can deliver a localised, flexible service with the appropriate escalation protocol to protect and educate vulnerable young people.

Unique Value

The eSafe Service is an intelligence-led early warning system that detects inappropriate IT activity 24 x 7. It uses forensic techniques to monitor imagery, language, Internet activity and off-line use, and informs as appropriate those charged with child safety of evident abuse.

The eSafe Service is a completely outsourced, managed service with all server hosting, incident monitoring, incident reporting and escalation, parameter setting and configuration,  and software systems updates and maintenance performed by eSafe staff.

The service is deployed remotely within minutes and can be localised to cater for the specific monitoring requirements of individual young people in care.

Multiple nominated contacts for reporting and escalation can be accommodated and the information routed depending on the user involved and/or the nature or severity of the incident.

The reviewed incident records are retained to build a pattern of behaviour, historic activity and to provide the basis for trend analysis.

At all times eSafe have been responsive and collaborative, working with us to provide the right information to the right people in a timely manner. Having qualified people able to check individual items of concern flagged up by the system has been invaluable and I would recommend eSafe without reservation

Testimonials

Blessed Hugh Farringdon School

Terry Bartrum - Network Manager

eSafe 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 eSafe 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

Swain House Primary School

Dianne Rowbotham - Headteacher

The eSafe Forensic Monitoring Service has been part of our whole school safeguarding arrangements for a number of years. I wouldn’t be without it. There have been a number of breaches of our Acceptable Use Policy over this period and the Service is quick and efficient in alerting us to them.

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.
