CPOMs at Blakehill

At Blakehill, we use CPOMS which is a software application for monitoring child protection, safeguarding and a whole range of pastoral and welfare issues. Working alongside a school’s existing safeguarding processes, CPOMS is an intuitive system to help with the management and recording of child protection, behavioural issues, bullying, special educational needs, domestic issues.

 

Using CPOMS, allows us to ensure that students are safe and fully supported, whilst school staff can focus on teaching and providing support, instead of administration. Every member of staff across school has an obligation to report any concerns which they may have. CPOMS allows them to record information in a central repository and have relevant people alerted immediately. Senior leaders can build a chronology around a student and can produce reports on vulnerable pupil groups
 
Incidents of a significant nature are recorded on CPOMs and help the school to build up a chronological picture of a child's welfare, behaviour, safety and wellbeing to ensure that they are fully supported. 
 
  • Each incident has a category e.g. Incident form, home issues, medical issue, attendance etc and alerts other staff to the incident.
  •  For each incident there is an action, this is not always going to be added by the person who adds the alert, it can be added by someone who is alerted to the incident as they may have further dealings with the child or parent.
