DfE Standards for Filtering and Monitoring
The DfE has released guidance on meeting Filtering and Monitoring Standards within education.
Filtering and monitoring are both important parts of safeguarding students and staff from potentially harmful and inappropriate online material.
We can help your school meet the DfE regulations, block unauthorised content and websites and monitor usage.
Web filtering is your school’s way of monitoring web activity and restricting access to sensitive or unsafe websites.
Smoothwall Filter protects students online with real-time, customisable filtering that blocks harmful and inappropriate content without detriment to their digital learning and teaching experience.

Digital monitoring solutions operate in the background of your schools’ devices, analysing all user activity in real time and instantly alerting your safeguarding teams of anything unusual.
Smoothwall Monitor helps schools to proactively detect online risks before they become real-life incidents, with the software outlining what the digital incident was and who it involved, allowing you to take prompt action.
