Filtering and Monitoring at Beatrix Potter School

In line with the guidance in 'Keeping Children Safe In Education,' Beatrix Potter School takes our responsibility to filter and monitor ICT and internet usage very seriously. We use the London Grid for Learning (LGFL) to filter and block access to inappropriate websites. We use a monitoring service called 'SENSO' which monitors all keystrokes on all the chromebooks registered to the school and takes a screenshot of any words typed that may cause concern, sending a message to the safeguarding team immediately with the chromebook, location and log in of the child or adult who has typed the word. This is then investigated.

The following advice sheets may also prove useful at home:


In addition here are some fact sheets aimed at parents on specific internet issues.
