The Safeguarding Company is now part of Tes!

The acquisition announced this month will further support Tes’ mission to support safeguarding in schools.

Tes is already well established at providing schools in the UK and internationally with trusted online training in safeguarding and duty of care, as well as providing digital solutions to monitor concerns and ensure compliance. This latest acquisition brings the leading suite of complementary digital solutions to complete the entire safeguarding picture for schools, via our award-winning solutions and industry leading technologies.

These include:

The award-winning centralised, secure record-keeping, case management and data reporting system.


enabling safe and thorough recruitment and personnel vetting that acts as a single central record.

equipping school and MAT leaders to manage serious allegations and lower-level concerns about staff confidentially, efficiently, and with confidence.

bringing powerful multi-establishment data reporting to MATs and local authorities, connecting with MyConcern and Confide.

offering CPD accredited safeguarding courses, specialist support services and safeguarding audits.

which we recently launched in response to Ofsted’s recommendation for anonymous student reporting.

Martin Baker, CEO and co-founder of The Safeguarding Company, said:

“What started in 2014 with the creation of MyConcern, has evolved and grown rapidly ever since. To now become part of Tes, such a large and trusted brand in education, and one that has been supporting schools for over a century, is a testament to everything that has been built by our team over the years.”

Baker continued:

“Safeguarding is a vital and sensitive subject for all schools, colleges and MATs, and it demands the highest standards constantly as core values in the business. Knowing that we are joining a team who share those values and are dedicated to bringing these solutions to many more educators, is something we can all be immensely proud of.”

Rod Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Tes, said:

“Every child has the right to feel safe, and being able to bring together everything that Tes has already built, with the solutions from The Safeguarding Company allows us to build an even stronger set of tools to support schools in this vital area. The team at The Safeguarding Company have developed these solutions from their backgrounds and experience working directly in policing, education, local authorities, health, and social care. Their passion and dedication in this area shines through in everything that they do.”

With a clear synergy between what this new acquisition and what Tes already offers, there are certainly opportunities to bring schools, colleges and MATs a more connected, more valuable, and more efficient total safeguarding offering.

Over the coming months we will continue to share news and developments of the acquisition with our customers.
