Paperless child protection

Paper records don’t cut it anymore. With Impero back:drop, school staff can record safeguarding concerns in seconds and manage them from anywhere, at any time.

With our safeguarding software for schools, it’s simple to track pastoral, child protection, behavioural and mental health concerns, as well as first aid incidents, to identify issues early and intervene when appropriate.

Intervene early & protect your students  

Impero back:drop makes it simple to identify and flag key trends. It automatically generates a safeguarding chronology for every student, complete with details and a full safeguarding history.

In addition to individual records, the technology provides risk and wellbeing visibility at the whole school, year group, and class level, as well as breaking down data by gender. This empowers staff to understand the challenges students face, which is the first step to overcoming them.

Secure safeguarding records 

Our safeguarding software is safe and robust, with two-factor authentication to ensure your school's data is protected and visible only to those who have authorised permissions. Each staff member is assigned specific rights, meaning more serious concerns, such as those related to child protection concerns, are only visible to those with the right permissions.

Impero back:drop guarantees a full audit trail of interventions for every students. Every record, edit of assignment is recorded, creating a court-admissible record to create evidence-based safeguarding records.
