ICT Health Check

Our ICT Health Check is the only totally independent and impartial programme of its kind available to education and third sector organisations. Beginning with an on-site visit to your school where we gather information from all users, the process ends with a rigorous ICT strategy that will deliver against measurable financial, operational and educational objectives.

Keeping children safe at school is a core element of our ICT Strategic Partnership. Our Safeguarding Programme is outlined during the ICT Health Check and then monitored, reviewed and refined on an ongoing basis. We do more than simply ensure your school is operating within legislative frameworks. We review management processes, conduct dynamic risk assessment programmes and pre-empt where technology is going so we can source the best solutions to protect your pupils, teachers and staff.

Cyber Security
