Raptor StudentSafe brings together the systems that help schools recognize, document, support and manage the wellbeing of individual students. The intuitive and robust platform includes safeguarding and behavioral threat assessment (BTA) which are proven to help schools recognize a student in need of early intervention and support for their wellbeing.
Early intervention is the most important and effective way to prevent a child from experiencing harm. Being able to recognize a student in the initial stages of distress empowers schools to reduce that child’s exposure to harm and give them the support they need to cope and heal.

Low-level concerns are minor concerns a staff member may have about a student’s behavior or observance of the student. These can include irregular attendance, outbursts or meltdowns, unexplained bruising, new slang, unkempt/disheveled, hungry, withdrawing, etc.
Oftentimes, such behaviors or observances may not seem concerning as a single instance, however when others have similar encounters with the student and they are all documented in a central, secure place, we can easily see patterns and a need for early help and support for the student. The sooner we can help the student, the better the outcomes.
The software is based on a longstanding practice in the UK called safeguarding, where it is the law that schools (and other institutions) must document all forms of concerns related to the health and wellbeing of students. The goal is to safeguard students/children from harm such as any form of abuse, neglect, and mistreatment, as well as peer-on-peer abuse, grooming for gangs or other illicit activities, trafficking, self-harm and more. In 2021, Raptor Technologies purchased CPOMS, the dominant provider of Safeguarding software in the UK with over 15,000 schools and more than a decade of history in improving the safety and wellbeing of UK students.
