According to NALDIC, there are more than a million pupils in English schools who speak languages in addition to English, which makes it near impossible for staff to monitor and react to all students as part of their safeguarding obligations.
Within NetSupport DNA, there are multiple language packs for the safeguarding keyword and phrase database. The tool uses advanced neurolinguistics technology to provide nominated school staff with an insight into what students have typed, the pages and content they have searched for and the text they have copied to the clipboard. It monitors both web and desktop applications and gives schools the option to exclude certain applications from monitoring if they wish. It draws on an extensive database of keywords and phrases covering the spectrum of safeguarding topics, to provide real value to your school.
Now your school’s teachers and safeguarding leads can extend their safeguarding provision to a wider group of students, as the packs allow them to see and monitor phonetic representations of what students are typing in languages other than English – alerting them to activity by any student who is potentially open to physical or emotional harm.
