Online Security and Content Filtering for Schools

Primary and secondary schools now have a statutory duty to engage with the government’s prevent agenda in order to prevent students from being drawn into terrorism. With the Internet and social media playing an important role in the radicalisation of young people, comprehensive online security and content filtering for schools is a key consideration.

Schools need to strictly monitor who is accessing or trying to access harmful content, consistently block access to inappropriate sites, and provide detailed activity reports to the law enforcement agencies, security services and Ofsted. Schools Connect can provide primary and secondary schools with security solutions and tools for their broadband that comply with the prevent agenda’s requirements.
