I feel your pain; our LEA has similarly draconian blocks. Makes trying to find solutions online while at LEA-served sites a complete PITA.
Amusingly, they tell you what category each blocked site has been put under when you try to access it; I say amusing because my personal website was categorised "Tasteless/Questionable/Illegal". At one point they also blocked anything with "mail" in the URL. That changed when many school's bursars complained they could no longer get to www.royalmail.co.uk
Our school moved away from the LEA-provided connection some years ago.

Netsweeper blocked it for me aswell, but only if I went to edugeek.net, EduGeek.net worked fine. Was abit strange!
