Filtering at Foreland Fields School

Keeping Children Safe in Education obliges schools and colleges in England to “ensure appropriate filters and appropriate monitoring systems are in place” and they “should be doing all that they reasonably can to limit children’s exposure to the above risks from the school’s or college’s IT system”


Our filtering provider, ‘Smoothwall’ has filed a submission with UK safer internet explaining that their filtering is appropriate. We have attached the Smoothwall document which details the measures they have in place to ensure that harmful content is restricted for our pupils and students.
