BeLF has teamed up with Steljes to provide safer internet access to pupils. Just a few days before the end of summer term. BeLF provided internet dongles to 3 schools. These schools who are already involved in the BeLF programme used parental contribution funds from previous projects to provide internet access to students and their families through via dongle modems.
These dongles are different to the usual dongles available from the shops. They offer managed access so pupils cannot access certain sites such as gambling or adult -orientated sites. Access depends on age group so parents and teachers have the peace of mind that children are more safely surfing the internet.
BeLF plans to rollout about 500 dongles to schools in the Autumn term. Any school that is involved in the BeLF programme and interested in this should contact Sophie or Ian
