The Difference between Active Monitoring and Filtering
As of September 2016 it became a mandatory requirement of KCSiE guidelines for all schools to have an online monitoring system in place. While many schools in the UK already have a filtering system in place, filtering alone does not fulfil this obligation. Filtering and active monitoring work quite differently, do you know the difference between them?
We have put this factsheet together to outline why your school needs to have an active monitoring system in place, how active monitoring is different to filtering and how by having an active monitoring system in place that your safeguarding strategies will be exponentially strengthened.
Remember that having the right active monitoring solution is now part of the Ofsted Common Inspection Framework and can help your school increase its grading. Read our factsheet to find out you can ensure that your legislative duty of care is fulfilled.
