How our web filtering system helps protect schools from litigation.

Web filtering for schools and colleges was in the news recently when pupils accessed inappropriate content via their school’s network. However, web filtering is not just designed to protect pupils.

Staff and the school itself also need the stringent protection provided by efficient web filtering.

Colin Woods, sales manager at South West Communications Group, explained: “We are looking to protect schools from litigation. We are looking to protect schools from those awkward conversations when a parent truly believes the integrity of their network has been compromised and that their child has been exposed to something they should not have been.”

Staff also have as many rights as the pupils, and schools have a legal responsibility and a duty of care as employers to protect them from being exposed to inappropriate content.

With this in mind; it is clear that web filtering in schools and colleges is not an option. It is a must.

Historically, web filtering was offered by not-for-profit organisations. However, there are now a choice of web filtering solutions available that empower IT and network managers of schools and colleges.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
