Slough Borough Council uses the Egress platform to share sensitive data about individuals securely. Education providers are also encouraged to use secure e-mail to share and receive sensitive children and family data.
Slough Borough Council has negotiated Egress licenses for our Education providers in Slough to support and enhance the data protection of sending and receiving secure documents. Egress accounts are secure e-mail platforms to send and receive sensitive data and information such as child protection report, SEND reports etc. The comprehensive package stores your documents that are sent and received where under the free and basic package this is not available on Switch Egress
Egress licenses are renewed annually in September. Please see FAQ's for further details about the project. If schools want to benefit from the Egress secure platform at competitive prices, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
