The Challenge

Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ALTP) is a multi-academy trust with more than 9,000 pupils and 1,500 staff members. Comprising of 14 different schools - five secondary schools and nine primary – our trust also has sixth form and early years provisions, several of which are in areas of deprivation.

Before MyConcern, all our schools were using paper to record safeguarding concerns. Files were often disorganised, and crucial information was not always in one place, making it difficult for one person to know all of the information about a child. The transfer of files, particularly from primary to secondary schools was also not as efficient as it should have been.

The Solution - MyConcern

After a painstaking process collating all the information needed for a Section 47 enquiry, we knew we needed a better system. We heard of MyConcern Safeguarding Software at a Birmingham Safeguarding Conference where we were offered a demonstration of the product.

"We knew immediately that is would be easy to use and offered us exactly what we wanted."

Implementing MyConcern

Ongoing MyConcern training as staff leave or need updating is really important to us. The help given by MyConcern’s customer support team made the onboarding process simple.

"MyConcern is a simple, easy to operate, easy to access one-stop-shop to record all our Child Protection information.”

We’ve also invested in MyConcern’s multi- establishment tool ‘Clarity’ which has been specifically designed for multi-academy trusts to compare concerns between schools to pinpoint where specific issues are occurring and effectively allocate resources.

"As a MAT Safeguarding Lead, Clarity enables me to have an oversight of what is happening across all our schools and then support and act on this accordingly.”

The Outcomes

  • Time-saving
  • Easy to access remotely
  • Data is held securely
  • Easy to create a holistic view of each student
  • Data identifies trends and informs our training requirements
  • Visibility of patterns and trends
  • Peace of mind and support for our DSLs
  • File transfer from primary to secondary schools is so much easier, as is secondary onwards

"Clarity also enables DSL’s to describe the context of their individual schools using their knowledge of the risks within their community backed up with data. This has really impressed our Governors."

"We feel far more confident about how we record and then act on Child Protection information."
