Our Online Safety Lead is
Our School Web Filtering System
The school uses a cloud based web filtering system that proactively monitors and updates the status of billions of blacklisted or bad websites online every hour of the day. This system is far better than a tradtional school server based software solution that can become out of date if not regularly checked or indeed can be hacked and deactivated by outside or internal 3rd parties. Our system's design is a first to be implentmented in schools, and offers a level of response and protection that traditional mainstream systems in education do not.
- Our system was fully protected from the recent threat to the NHS - other schools were badly affected
- Our system benefits from an international cloud based mesh protection system. This means that if one branch of the mesh network fails, within seconds we switch over to another branch of the mesh system which is fully functional. This means no downtime and no periods of time where the school could be online and unprotected
- Our system operates a responsive policy that approves and blocks white and black listed websites based on over one thousand must pass criteria factors. The school’s IT Network Manager can block or allow any website app or service. Other schools do not have this level of control over their web content filtering as it is managed for them by an outside agency.
