TOTAL SAFEGUARDING

We believe that successfully achieving high standards of professional safeguarding practice is founded on eight core principles that come together to create Total Safeguarding:

•  Strong governance, leadership and management
•  A clear focus on harm prevention and reduction
•  Efficient recording and case management of concerns
•  Effective team working within and between individuals and organisations
•  Managing and sharing information securely, lawfully, and pro-actively
•  Securing professional and emotional support for your people, your teams and yourself
•  Being able to see the rich picture – understanding your data and developing insight
•  Learning lessons from your own professional practice and that of others.

The essential step to Total Safeguarding is to combine the practice of safeguarding with the very best technology - each is necessary, individually they are unlikely to meet the current safeguarding challenge. Together we can create everything you need for yours to be a world-class safeguarding organisation – one that protects children and adults and supports them to have the best outcomes in learning, in work and in life.

Build a Rich Picture

Gaining a multi-establishment perspective provides much greater insight to improve safeguarding practice

Safeguarding concerns are rarely limited to a single place or issue - they often occur in multiple locations and involve several people and issues. Building a rich picture using a wide base of data and from a multi-establishment perspective can provide much greater insight. Organisation-wide and even community-based action now becomes possible.

Data from multiple instances of MyConcern can be analysed using the advanced capabilities of Clarity to track trends, identify actionable opportunities for intervention, save time and money, and improve safeguarding practice.

"As a MAT Safeguarding Lead, Clarity enables me to have an oversight of what is happening across all our schools and then support and act on this accordingly. "

Sue Bailey Multi-Academy Trust Safeguarding Lead, Arthur Terry Learning Partnership
