MyConcern is a simple, safe and secure solution for recording and managing all safeguarding concerns. It enables you to evidence the effectiveness of your safeguarding arrangements to ISI and drive improved outcomes for children.

Benefits and features

  • Simple and safe to use

    Staff can easily record and manage any safeguarding concerns as they occur. The synchronisation with SIMS streamlines data entry by automatically pulling the relevant student information across from SIMS to create the student profile in MyConcern. The safeguarding lead has additional access to support management, prioritisation and any ongoing action that needs to be taken.

  • Identify emerging problems

    Comprehensive data dashboards enable the early identification of safeguarding risks to individual students and any trends. Automatic notifications from MyConcern are sent to the designated safeguarding lead when a concern is logged.

  • Working together to safeguard children

    Schools can facilitate joint working and safe information sharing with colleagues, by adding them as team members to a specific concern or pupil profile in MyConcern. This generates a complete picture of an individual’s well-being, allowing schools to manage concerns and pupils, and enabling the relevant team members to act when required.

  • Show the impact of your safeguarding strategy

    Dynamic reporting tools provide clear and auditable evidence for all senior leaders and ISI. Reports can be created on any combination of categories of concern or pupil information over a fixed or dynamic time period. Multiple dashboards can be created to fit your school or group's structure and specialist roles.
