Visigo is a service that monitors student activity on our computers for areas of concern, such as self-harm, bullying, grooming and other risk categories. It will send alerts to our safeguarding team if it detects that a student is at risk.

If you would like more information about Smoothwall Limited, please contact the Data Protection Officer, Simon Scott-Beer.
The information is collected and processed on the basis that it is in the substantial public interest as well as the legitimate interests of Smoothwall Limited and the school for the school to meet its statutory obligations to safeguard its students and ensure their online safety through the use of the Visigo software and services.
The explicit consent of the students or their parents and guardians to the collection and processing is also obtained. This consent can be withdrawn at any time by writing to the school and/or Smoothwall Limited.
The profiling and human moderation helps to avoid false alerts, which might otherwise be caused by things like the occasional swear word or a student inadvertently accessing or attempting to access some undesirable material on the web.
