Monitoring - you asked; we listened

As a result of new expectations on schools for filtering and monitoring, in both KCSIE 2023 and the DfE standards, schools have been asking us to provide an LGfL monitoring service.

Unlike filtering, monitoring is not just about websites, and it isn't about blocking things. Instead, it gives you context on student behaviour across all applications and devices. This helps safeguarding teams to see the journey a user has been on, with information on what they have typed, visited and read, in order to highlight concerning behaviour, communication or access. 

If you know WHY and WHAT happened, then it is much easier to keep children safe.

We are delighted to say we have procured TWO systems from market-leading provider Senso:

  • Unmanaged Monitoring - this automated system captures concerning user behaviour from all devices and applications. The information is fed into a user-friendly portal for school staff to examine and process.

  • Human Intervention (Managed) Service - with this service, schools retain access to the same state-of-the-art portal and all the captures and contextual information, but a dedicated Senso-LGfL team screens all captures to remove false positives, sends medium alerts for review, and picks up the phone to school whenever there is a serious concern that needs immediate attention. 

Introduction to Monitoring

Senso Word Cloud

Our monitoring services powered by Senso will be ideal for single schools or multi-academy trusts. 

Senso and LGfL will be working with state-of-the-art AI technology but also a team of respected academic linguists who are at the cutting edge of identifying harm through language.

Whether you want to identify risks of bullying, self-harm or suicidal ideation, grooming for child sexual or criminal exploitation, radicalisation and extremism or a range of other harms, the real-time alerts will change the way you do safeguarding. 

As an added advantage, subscribers to LGfL broadband gain exclusive access to Senso for Microsoft Teams integration! That means that wherever students chat on Teams (often on their own devices so not otherwise monitored, Senso and LGfL will be there, and so will you.

What's included?

We will be sharing more specific details of the two systems soon, but meanwhile, here is a glimpse into some of the features:

  • Visual Threat Analysis

  • CPOMS & MyConcern integration

  • Safeguarding Dashboard

  • Keyword Libraries

  • Reports

  • Email alerts

What will it cost? When can I start?

We are working hard at the moment to work out the best ways to get it into schools' hands and in the next week or so we will have details on costs, where applicable. Remember, our charitable objectives include 'keeping children safe' and 'saving schools money', so we are doing all we can to make this accessible. More details on that soon.

Please note that for the managed service, we are starting with a limited pilot for the first couple of months to ensure everything is as it should be. The unmanaged service will be immediately available to all upon release.

Meanwhile, if you are eager to be an early adopter, fill out the form below and we will be in touch soon.

More about Senso - linguistics

Senso is an innovative monitoring provider which is well-known in the market for its approach to safeguarding technologies. One feature in which it is really leading the way is linguistics.

The Nottingham-based company has been a trailblazer in this often underlooked area, working with university linguistics researchers who design complex models to spot the warning signs of a safeguarding concern. Senso works with these academics to process and analyse vast amounts of language data to identify trends which AI alone (and yes, they use that too!) cannot.
