The five schools where provision for e-safety was outstanding all used ‘managed’
systems to help pupils to become safe and responsible users of new technologies.
‘Managed’ systems have fewer inaccessible sites than ‘locked down’ systems and so
require pupils to take responsibility themselves for using new technologies safely.
Although the 13 schools which used ‘locked down’ systems kept their pupils safe
while in school, such systems were less effective in helping them to learn how to use
new technologies safely. These pupils were therefore more vulnerable overall.
