Would you like to improve your web filtering and firewall without losing your existing broadband connectivity?

Now you can.

Does your school receive web filtering and firewall as part of a centrally procured broadband provision?

Centrally procured, high-speed broadband often comes bundled with some form of web filtering and firewall. Web filtering and firewall are a crucial part of your
school’s digital safeguarding. Keeping your school compliant with the ever tighter regulations around digital safeguarding is not only an Ofsted requirement,
the safety and wellbeing of your students depend on it.

Your school is unique

Every school has its own student culture, and its only safeguarding challenges, processes and procedures. It is critical that your filtering and firewall are aligned with your unique circumstances.

Your school should understand, choose and interact with its safeguarding technology in a way that feels right for you. That includes reporting, alerts, delegation of control, reassurance of regulatory knowledge, and other factors.

Your digital safeguarding strategy should be unique

Choosing a technology partner that addresses your student culture, safeguarding challenges, resources, current strengths and weaknesses – not just now but over the long term – is important to keeping everyone digitally safe and healthy. 

Choosing your technology partner is an important decision. It should never be a tick in a box. 


Our filtering comes bundled with other things like broadband. I don’t truly know if it’s the best fit for us. I don’t even know that much about the company who provides it. I’d prefer a direct and closer relationship. There’s too much at stake to get this wrong.
