We're here to support the DSL
As each year passes the expectation on the DSL to keep pupils safe from harm is increasing. This brings with it key challenges. Not least of which is keeping ahead of government guidance and policy changes in response to the ever-evolving world of digital safety. It’s a ceaseless task.
While some DSLs can focus 100% of their time to the job, many more are juggling the responsibilities with those of teaching or deputy leadership. But in all cases, it’s a role that exposes those who undertake it to emotional strain.
We help by developing products and services to meet their needs and by making available practical guidance, insights and case studies.
Collaboration is key.
Our Monitoring solutions are a crucial virtual assistant for our DSLs, informing them if a student tries to view or type content that may indicate risk to them or others such as violence, suicide, self-harm or inappropriate use of school resources.
Our record management solution allows teachers and DSLs to easily record child protection issues and safeguarding incidents electronically without the need for traditional daybooks or CP files.
We publish papers, articles, guides and case studies on all areas of digital safety pertinent to the DSL. It’s a practical and free bank of resources that’s continually growing.
