MyConcern is a simple, safe and secure solution for recording and managing all safeguarding concerns for schools and groups of schools. It enables you to evidence the effectiveness of your safeguarding arrangements to Ofsted 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 the additional access to support the management, prioritisation and ongoing action that needs to be taken.

  • Identify emerging problems

    Comprehensive data dashboards enable the early identification of safeguarding risks to individual students and trends across the full range of concerns. Automatic notifications from MyConcern are sent to the designated safeguarding lead when any new concerns arise. 

  • Working together to safeguard children

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

  • Show the positive impact of your safeguarding strategy

    Powerful reporting tools provide clear and auditable evidence for all stakeholders including Ofsted and senior leaders. 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.

  • Now that we have every school in the area using MyConcern we have a great opportunity to share information in a secure environment and enhance safeguarding arrangements across all of our schools.
