What is CPOMS?

Most schools operate a manual (in many cases hand written and paper based) system for the reporting of incidents, including potential Child Protection issues. This ‘system’ is usually referred to within a school as ‘the cabinet’ or ‘the file(s)’.  CPOMS enables schools to improve their management of child protection and similar incidents and actions, whilst reducing staff time, paperwork and administration. 

CPOMS also enables schools to track referrals to external agencies, such as the NHS/CAMHSChildren’s Services, and the Police.(including letters and phone calls) and be alerted if timescales are not being met. CPOMS also uses the same action-based functionality to track communication with parents and carers, as well as students themselves. A meeting held, conversation with a child, or a decision to undertake a CAF can all be recorded on the system, in a safe, secure and searchable record.

Using the incident and logging facility of CPOMS, a school can follow a referral from the initial stage, keep a secure audited record of communications (including letters and telephone calls) and be alerted if timescales are not being met.

Not just Child Protection and Safeguarding

We recognise that no two schools are the same. As such CPOMS can be quickly and easily customised to meet your particular needs. It might just be that you want a safe and secure way for your staff to log Child Protection and Safeguarding concerns. But that’s just the start. CPOMS can be used to record a whole host of wider pastoral and welfare information across school. From information on behaviour and  bullying to notes on the interventions you have in place for your Pupil Premium students, the possibilities are endless.

“We searched for a long time to find an effective and efficient system for recording incidents and actions for our vulnerable children. Nothing matched our requirements until we came across CPOMS.  CPOMS provides us with a secure system that is accessible to staff at the levels we choose to allocate them. Informing staff of incidents is straightforward and the system is very well used across the school.  The support offered by Meritec is fantastic, there is always a friendly voice at the end of the phone, emails are answered promptly and we have never been disappointed with a response.”
