The heart of your solution

Fully managed web filter

Vital work with you to safeguard staff and students in your care with education-focused web-filtering policies and proactive alerts.

You can be confident that staff and students will only be able to access appropriate online content in the classroom and any attempted access to inappropriate content will be flagged. Teaching staff can focus on education without the distraction of inaccessible lesson content or disciplining students who are off task.

Monitoring self-service

Vital provide a monitoring service which captures screen shots from all your school devices. Alerts are then delivered to the dedicated safeguarding lead to grade their importance and determine follow-up procedures.

  • Self-service portal
  • Heatmaps of alerts for prioritisation
  • Pre-graded alerts

Moderated monitoring

This solution offers all of the features of the monitoring explored above but with the added benefit of a call to your school where there is a threat to life.

  • Contextualised alerts to explain the screenshot
  • Profiling of changes in staff and student behaviour

Classroom Manager

Empowers teachers to keep students focused and on task. Learning becomes richer and learning outcomes are improved.

  • Full integration with Google classroom
  • Lock students screens who are off task
  • Close down browser windows
  • Push out URL for lesson content

How much does it cost?

Connectivity, filtering and monitoring are provided as bespoke solutions according to your  requirements.

Please contact us for details.

What do our clients say?

Vital’s focus is not just about developing an infrastructure to suit the needs of staff but the way that all aspects of IT can be enhanced to support the delivery of education.
