Keeping Kids Safe

Friday, October 10, 2008

Heeley MP Meg Munn recently met with a company behind a revolutionary software solutions package which is having dramatic positive results in schools. ‘Keep Kids Safe’ is a system which uses new technologies, allowing schools to communicate with pupils and their parents easier, more efficiently and cheaper.


The project has been running for nearly 2 years and has been devised by CMM Technology based in Sheffield. There are 10 secondary schools across Sheffield and more than 450 across the country who have signed up to the system.


Meg was briefed about the project by Headteacher Angela Wild from Phillimore Community Primary School, who said that attainment, attendance and parental confidence in the school had increase dramatically. She described how, in a single click of a mouse, a text message could be sent to parents informing them if their child would be late home from a school trip, or if the school had to close for unavoidable reasons or to tell them about their child’s achievement during the school day.


Meg said:


“I remember when at school being sent home with letters for parents, letters often stuffed in the bottom of our school bags and forgotten about. This system embraces new technologies of text messaging and email to communicate with parents, telling them if their child is not in school or that the school is closed in an emergency.


This is a fantastic system, one which has potential beyond its original intention. It has my full support”.


Meg is with Ed Wydenbach, former Headteacher of Myrtle Springs School, David Johnson, Principal Consultant of ‘Keep Kids Safe’, Ann Wild, Headteacher of Phillimore Primary School, and Mathew Smith, Managing Director of CMM Technology.
