With pupils researching so much more online, this service has enabled us to quickly pick up on areas that could be a potential concern. At times, items flagged have resulted in pupils gaining additional support from relevant agencies and being effectively safeguarded. We are confident that our use of the Link2ICT Monitoring Service helps us to fulfil our safeguarding obligations
