SWGfL AlertsReputation Alerts

Easily monitor online content referencing your school with email alerts and an online dashboard.

Increasingly parents are selecting schools based on the information they find online often in open forums. This new service uses leading online and social media alerting tools from market specialists to bring intelligence– positive and negative –directly to you. Don’t stick your head in the sand; know what people are writing about you and your school.

SWGfL WhisperWhisper

The service designed for your school community to report issues to you anonymously directly from your website.

Schools who provide effective support for their pupils have a range of reporting routes and yet children are often reluctant to report directly to an adult. Whisper simply and instantly installs a report button on your school website that enables you to capture those reports anonymously. And by SMS too. The report box can be customised with your text and school logo and links to a nominated school email address. Turn “bystanders” into “upstanders”.

Incident Response ToolIncident Response Tool

An interactive tool to manage incidents with the right device and evidence to ensure compliance.

When an incident occurs, making sure you do the right thing is more than a just a matter of safeguarding; getting it wrong could expose your school to challenge or litigation. The Generation Safe™ incident response tool developed by lawyers and child protection experts, enables you to map the response process with helpful timescales, escalation routes and evidence. It provides interactive guidance at each stage and templates for recording and reporting incidents to achieve a consistent and compliant response.

Finding relevant and accessible training for staff can be both challenging and expensive. With BOOST you get unlimited access to a host of expert-led webinars that cover a broad spectrum of online safety spects that you know will be up-to-date and engaging. You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own school; just plug in.

BOOST benefits both from shortcuts to our favourite resources as well as our new digital literacy curriculum, saving you time and effort in finding the right resource that provides children with the right competency, at the right age.
