Appropriate Filtering and Monitoring – Safer Internet Centre

Appropriate Filtering and Monitoring – Safer Internet Centre

In December 2015, the Department for Education published proposed changes to ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ for consultation applying to schools in England. Amongst the proposed changes, schools will be obligated to “ensure appropriate filters and appropriate monitoring systems are in place. Children should not be able to access harmful or inappropriate material from the school or colleges IT system” however, schools will need to “be careful that “over blocking” does not lead to unreasonable restrictions as to what children can be taught with regards to online teaching and safeguarding.”

The aim of the following documents are to help schools and providers comprehend, in conjunction with their completed risk assessment, what should be considered as ‘appropriate’ filtering and monitoring.
