    Sparklebox

    Regrettably Manchester LEA and Stockport LEA have now unblocked Sparklebox following a brief block on the site after the recent controversy. What's the current situation in your LA?

    Sparklebox is not blocked by RM SafetyNet, but other than the classroom resource downloads, there is nothing much you can do as RM blocks other content for one reason or another (including the ads) I don't have a problem with that

    Rather surprising in the circumstances. For those interested, I have created some SB removers you can download here.

    EMBC blocked, but can be allowed at local level at the schools discretion.
