Filtering in the South Wst
Filtering systems are facilitated through the local grid for learning. In the South West everytime we enter a URL for a website, a request is sent to the SWGfL asking permission before the site appears. The filtering system does a search for key words and unlawful content before deciding wheher or not the website is allowed. If a teacher wants to use a website which is filtered they need to ask permission from the local authority in charge of the filter. Through the walled garden approach websites can then be checked and permission given.
