The Challenge

St Benedict’s was one of the first schools to be selected by MyConcern as a Flagship Partner for its excellence in safeguarding. It caters for 1080 pupils from a variety of backgrounds, aged between 3 and 18.

Before adopting MyConcern, the school used individual forms, stored securely in a computer file to log and track safeguarding concerns. Access to this file was limited, the system very labour intensive and information sharing was difficult.

The Solution - MyConcern

MyConcern was designed by safeguarding professionals to facilitate the communication, tracking and resolution of pastoral and safeguarding concerns. St Benedict’s were impressed by the innovative solution and felt the company’s background in child protection gave the system real integrity, so they arranged to see MyConcern in action.
