Web filtering

purple-robot-web-filtereSafety4schools delivers a comprehensive Web Filtering product directly to schools either over their existing Internet connection or via an LA network such as emPSN. The installation process takes 30 minutes & for primary schools 3 polices staff/pupils/SMT will be immediately set up and working. For Secondary schools AD integration is provided as standard thus allowing Web Filtering rules to be set up against each AD group. The school itself and/or its 3rd party support company (or LA) will be given administration access to an easy to use management interface.

From the interface the existing Web Filtering rules can be amended to suit the school and its Internet Usage Policy, you are in control—eSafety4schools will recommend which categories be allowed and which be denied but ultimately it is the Headteacher or Safeguarding officers decision.

Once set up the school can utilise the extensive pre-configured canned reports of ‘Top Allow site/Top Denied sites” etc, or build and schedule their own bespoke reports using the management interface, which can also be used to create unique deny pages with the school logo/colours & AUP eSafety4schools will assist you every step of the way from deciding which categories to add to the Web Filtering Rules for Pupils and staff to which weekly reports to run, feel free to call us for advise or assistance at any time.

Protect eSafety Monitoring

protectAll schools will be required to put in place strengthened measures to protect children from harm online – including cyber bullying, pornography and the risk of radicalisation – under plans unveiled by Education Secretary Nicky Morgan (22 December 2015). Under the proposals published today for consultation, all schools will need to have appropriate filters and monitoring systems, so that no child can access harmful content via the school’s IT systems and concerns can be spotted quickly”(www.gov.uk)

Protect eSafety Monitoring from eSafety4schools includes:

  • Active monitoring of Policy Central or Futures Cloud from Future Digital
  • Screen captures reviewed and graded by experienced ex LA officers, Captures created when predefined words and phrases are triggered
  • All captures are graded on a 6-point scale from False-Positives to Potential Serious eSafety Threats
  • Head teachers and designated Safeguarding Personal alerted to concerns
  • There is no requirement for Senior Staff to be trained in the use of Policy Central
  • Shared web filtering polices, and alerts – enabling quick and efficient updates that the school does not need to worry about.
  • Cost effective managed services that release school staff to carry out their day to day school duties
