The Dunham Trust Provides a Friendly Welcome Across Their Schools


VisiPoint provided an intuitive visitor management solution for the Dunham Trust that allowed visitors, staff and students to sign into the premises quickly and easily.

The client

The Dunham Trust is a multi-academy trust based in Trafford, Greater Manchester.

The trust comprises 5 schools, catering to pupils aged between 4 and 11 years old.

The brief

The Dunham Trust were searching for a sign-in solution to replace their old sign-in book, which would help them to enhance safeguarding and provide a better experience for parents, visitors, staff and governors.

The trust asked us to provide solutions for three of their schools: Acre Hall, The Orchards, and Elmridge.


  • Provide a sign-in process that is modern, quick and simple
  • Improve record keeping
  • Equip the trust with real-time information to improve safeguarding
  • Save on running costs and free up time for reception staff


The Dunham Trust was looking to find a modern system which would complement their reception team – improving visitor and staff experience and automating some of the core admin tasks which use up valuable time for staff.


The 13” VisiPoint tablet, combined with our professional plan, provides a seamless sign-in process across the trust. Visitors follow a few simple steps on the tablet, while staff can swipe their entry cards to sign in.

Not only does this save users time when they sign in, but it also frees up invaluable time for the admin team to spend on other duties.

“VisiPoint is so easy to use and the customer service is brilliant. The biggest benefits for us are being able to access live reports of staff and visitors on site and up-to-date evacuation lists via mobile while performing our fire drills.”

The installation of a VisiPoint sign-in solution at The Dunham Trust has improved visitor experience by offering a quicker way to sign in, giving visitors an exceptional first impression of the school.

Using VisiPoint’s management dashboard, which keeps a secure record of sign-in history, The Dunham Trust is able to analyse and generate reports on visitors and staff.

The solution is completely scalable, so has the future potential to expand to include more schools as the trust grows.
