An announcement to our valued customers


The next chapter in our story

Date: July 2019

We are delighted to announce that Safeguard Software has been acquired by Smoothwall, the No 1 provider of digital safeguarding solutions into UK Education.

What does this mean for you?

On a day-to-day basis it’s business as usual, except now we have access to new resources and market-leading software engineering capability to provide even better support for your record keeping and wider digital safeguarding. Safeguard is already capable of integrating with Smoothwall Monitor so that any of our customers wishing to adopt digital monitoring can do so but with the added benefit of a more robust and holistic view of the wellbeing of each child.

What does this mean for us?

The Safeguard team is now part of Smoothwall and will be working closely with the engineering teams at Smoothwall’s UK headquarters in Leeds. I set out 4 years ago to develop a record keeping solution that would be feature-rich, easy to use and affordable. Schools across the UK welcomed that concept and embraced Safeguard. Joining forces with a company as passionate about digital safeguarding as us, will take us into the next chapter in our story. We’ll keep you informed of the exciting new developments as they happen. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for putting your trust in Safeguard over the last 4 years and bringing us to where we are today. We come to work every day to find better ways to help you safeguard your pupils. This commitment is stronger than ever during this exciting time.

With gratitude

Steve Morrissey

Recently we had to submit reports from Safeguard to Children’s Social Care. All reports were praised for being concise, in chronological order and formatted so that relevant services could easily see the next steps.
