Monitoring pupil internet use

New Guidelines out for Consultation

“Schools in England must set online filters and monitor pupils’ internet use under plans to protect them from radicalisation, education secretary Nicky Morgan said.

Ministers are concerned young people could be targeted by extremists, possibly via school computers.

Mrs Morgan said some pupils had been able to access information about so-called Islamic State at school.

Teaching unions said schools would welcome greater clarity on the plans.

The reforms, which have been published for consultation, follow several cases where school children either travelled, or attempted to travel, to Syria.”  BBC News
