Local control of filtering
I’ve been shown a document that needs returning to our LEA about internet filtering and the school needs to choose a level. Currently we have local control of filtering and have done for 2-3 years with no problems at all. Now reading this document it appears that if you have local control of filtering new websites are not added to the filter list which I always thought they were
Local control of filtering:
“when embc adds a newly discovered website to the blocked list which applies across the whole embc region it will not be blocked in your school”
Surely this is wrong? I thought local control was when the embc added sites to the list but the school could make exceptions and force the sites through plus block sites that are not on the list.
