Contextual safeguarding, student reporting tool preview on mobile devices for DSLs

As adults, we have all experienced the difficulty of disclosing something uncomfortable, even to our trusted friends, and especially face to face.

Unfortunately, this is why many people stay silent.

Research has shown that for young people, the social rules that govern their lives (Dr Carlene Firmin, 2017) can make coming forward even harder.

We can, however, start the conversation by providing young people with a safe space to speak up. Now we ask…

Are the current student reporting methods engaging them as much as they could be?

Introducing the student focused platform…

Designed to remove the fear and stigma attached to reporting issues; The Student Voice is an interactive and child-friendly reporting tool that utilises interactive maps of all the contexts that your young people spend time in, so your school or college can improve these spaces with more targeted and effective interventions, and ultimately prevent future harm.

Whether a young person travels on the bus with peers, sees issues happening in the local park, or has a quiet and safe space they prefer in school, students can rank how safe they feel using a universal traffic light system, and report their experiences in these contexts.

For a Designated Safeguarding Lead, this can gather live contextual insight on everything from harmful hotspot areas for child-on-child abuse issues in school and on transport routes, to community issues they can share between local schools, to mental health and wellbeing, bullying and online safety. Schools can improve these spaces with targeted and informed interventions, and enhance their preventative safeguarding work in real-time.

Case study

from inadequate to good

“Leaders also introduced an online system for pupils to share their worries with staff.
Pupils are encouraged to share any concerns they have about returning to school.
Pupils value this and said that teachers respond to their concerns quickly.
This has helped to reduce some pupils’ anxieties about returning to school.”

“There are aspects of this platform that we can see making an immediate impact, such as the hotspot data tool where real physical locations of potential risks can be identified not just in school but across the wider community. We are excited to tackle student safeguarding as a community concern, not just a school concern.”

Jason Howard, Quality Assurance Director, Creative Education Trust.

“What has been really successful is students being able to engage, make suggestions and feel included as part of our school.

It ticks the contextual safeguarding box whether its issues inside or outside of school, and allows us to quickly intervene with situations, whether it’s something that has occurred online or on our buses.

Students are starting to share things we wouldn’t have heard of, or what we would have only felt the impact of through their behaviour in school. Now they feel like they have a place where they can vent their frustrations….it allows us to react faster and more effectively to our responsibilities around addressing peer-on-peer issues.”

Michael Few, Assistant Head and DSL at Kineton High School

“Safeguarding students, and capturing their voice is something we are passionate about. The Student Voice is a genuine effort to place the student at the centre of the Bilton school community, to provide them with opportunities for true advocacy through authentic voice and to challenge them to play their part in the development of their school life.”

Louis Donald, Director of Safeguarding, Stowe Valley Multi Academy Trust

“We have been struggling to engage with a particular student for quite a few months. We launched The Student Voice this week, promoting it to our students as a safe space for them to voice anything that is concerning them and that we want to hear from them. We are very pleased to say that within the first few days, the student used the system to articulate their worries and what support they feel could help them.

The Student Voice has provided an invaluable safe space for our students to feel comfortable to communicate with us.”

Amy Eagleton, Designated Safeguarding Lead at Moor End Academy

“This is a fantastic resource – child-friendly and simple to use. It covers in-school, surrounding areas and home…It creates a proactive approach to reporting and understands the barriers children face in trusting the reporting system.”

Ann Marie Christian, Safeguarding and Child Protection Expert

“The first step to protecting students is listening to their experiences of where they feel safe and unsafe at school. The Student Voice tool supports schools to put Contextual Safeguarding into action.”
