E-Safety is beyond doubt the most important consideration for educational establishments when considering internet access solutions. For this reason, e-safety forms the basis of all the educational internet content filtering solutions we provide.
Internet Content Filtering powered by Lightspeed Systems ensures access to valuable web resources for education, without over blocking. This ensures compliance, flexible internet content filtering policies and reporting are available to the school.
SchoolCare's internet content filtering for schools offers a 360-degree filtering solution. For schools and colleges that offer a BYOD or one to one device solution, the filtering policies can be applied to the school owned devices both on and off the site network. An example of this is the deployment of a 1:1 iPad solution in a school, where parents contribute to the cost of the device. This means the school retains the duty of care to ensure the device is appropriate for the student to use. Using Lightspeed internet content filtering and Mobile Device Management ensures the mobile devices adhere to the schools filtering policy whether they are at school or on a home broadband connection.
SchoolCare's internet content filtering for schools allow a complete granular control of your schools internet access, meaning you do not have to adhere to one central policy. This puts the school in control of filtering requirements, even right down to individual users. High-level policies are enforced to ensure accidental unblocking of inappropriate content is not possible. Our support team will work with you to help deploy and administer you required filtering policies.
Internet Content filtering from Lightspeed and SchoolCare allows staff to make quick temporary changes to filtering rules, even during a lesson. Lesson time is then not wasted by over blocked content which can be an issue with other filtering solutions, including those offered by Local Education Authorities.
SchoolCare is able to offer an on-premise solution, which will allow you to maintain your existing broadband provision ( this is useful you are tied into a long-term contract). We offer onsite installation and support services as part of our solution.
