When an incident is detected a screenshot ‘capture’ with detailed evidence is stored on our highly secure cloud-based console for review by an authorised member of school staff. Or, with our Full Monitoring Service (Securus FMS), our safeguarding team monitors all captures on your behalf, immediately alerting school staff to high severity incidents.
Key Components of Securus Digital Monitoring
Our intuitive, secure, access anywhere, cloud-based console captures and stores all incidents triggered by words and phrases detected from our library containing 24+ categories of concern.
When an incident is detected a screenshot ‘capture’ with detailed evidence automatically updates the Securus Console, enabling safeguarding staff to easily review and manage potential risks.
The console also features a management dashboard and reporting suite.
With online & offline monitoring at both the device and network level, our Securus 360 software monitors all school managed devices & also personal devices connected to the school network.
Incidents triggered generate a screenshot ‘capture’ with full details which instantly updates the Securus Console.
We not only capture keyboard generated incidents. With our unique OCR scanning technology our device level software also captures ANY application generated incidents including Microsoft Teams.
Fully Managed Service

With Securus 360, schools have the option to monitor captures themselves using the Securus Console. Or if time constraints and staff resource are stretched, you may wish to leave the monitoring to us…

Why Do Schools Need Securus?
Securus software has been rigorously designed to meet the DfE statutory safeguarding and legislative requirements & adheres to the Education Inspection Framework for Ofsted & the ISI.
In April 2022 Ofsted unveiled its new five-year strategy with Keeping Children Safe, one of eight Strategic priorities stating that they “… will promote children’s safety and welfare in everything we do and highlight systemic safeguarding issues wherever we find them, so that schools and other education providers or other appropriate agencies can take preventative action”.
Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 builds on existing guidance enhancing and incorporating policies on domestic abuse, sexual violence, and sexual harassment. There is also an increased emphasis on governing bodies and proprietors to ensure they facilitate a whole school approach to safeguarding, including appropriate monitoring systems.
Also worth noting is that the term peer-on-peer abuse has been replaced with child-on-child abuse to reflect the fact that abuse often takes place between children and young people of different ages.
As part of the guidance contained in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, The Prevent duty is intended to help schools and childcare providers think about what they can do to protect children from the risk of radicalisation and being drawn into terrorism.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate is appointed by the DfE to inspect all aspects of school life in association independent schools in England.
In line with statutory guidance inspectors assess whether schools “have in place arrangements that reflect the importance of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children” Safeguarding is embedded throughout the regulatory requirements that ISI inspects against and evaluated on every inspection.
