anonymous student reporting
With Ofsted and ISI placing an increasing emphasis on what makes an effective safeguarding strategy, offering students the opportunity to voice their concerns via anonymous student reporting is encouraged by school inspectorates, which make reference to robust reporting channels and ‘anonymous methods of disclosure’.
Impero Education Pro includes an anonymous reporting tool, named Confide, which enables students to report safeguarding concerns either about themselves or another student, to a trusted member of staff. Students can choose to remain identified if they wish, determined by a simple tick box, and can request that staff respond via a preferred method of contact (email, in person, phone or text). Staff members are instantly alerted to any concerns reported to them, with access to all reports via the Confide Viewer as a record for tracking, reporting, or for review. Each Confide submission is displayed to Impero Console users, assigned with the relevant privileges; each logged report is displayed with a series of detailed information columns, including a unique ID, details of the issue, which staff member has been assigned the report, the classification (i.e. bullying), the status and the severity.
