DSLs in a Multi-Academy Trust face some
unique digital safety challenges.

Though many safeguarding duties are delegated to the Local Governing Body (LGB) of each academy, the MAT is still responsible to ensure these duties are being carried out correctly.

A weakness in safeguarding practice at one academy can impact on the reputation of the entire MAT. If it does, it may not be so easy to repair.

At Smoothwall we support DSLs in MATs to feel confident that their academies have the wherewithal to ensure compliant digital safeguarding practices. As well as providing pioneering solutions we help build knowledge and understanding across the entire digital safeguarding picture.

Child safety excellence

We help MAT DSLs adopt high, centralised standards and become a beacon in online safety excellence.


Non or weak compliance risks child safety, a poorer Ofsted rating and a damaged reputation. We work with DSLs to exceed your obligations across all areas.


Parts of the digital safety landscape reside within IT. Our goal is to breakdown the those barriers and equip non-technical DSLs with the knowledge they need.
