Why Schools and Colleges Need Safeguarding Software
The number and range of safeguarding concerns now being handled in schools have grown exponentially to include issues such as child sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation, radicalisation, online bullying and e-safety issues.
There has also been significantly more exposure and identification of the number of young people experiencing mental health issues. As a result, those working in education face ever-growing challenges day to day.

Staff can easily record and manage their safeguarding concerns on any web-enabled device. MyConcern® saves significant admin time and provides peace of mind that the safeguarding lead has been notified.
