How does a school obtain the Friendly WiFi Approved School certification?
To obtain the certification, all you need to do is complete the application form [LINK] and provide evidence that your WiFi service is filtered to meet the following levels of protection:
1. Blocking access to material on the IWF URL List.
2. Blocking access to material on the CTIRU list.
3. Blocking access to pornography.
The IWF URL List is a list of webpages that are known to contain images and/or videos of child sexual abuse, advertisements for or links to such content.
The CTIRU list (or ‘the police assessed list of unlawful terrorist content, produced on behalf of the Home Office’) is a list of webpages that are known to contain unlawful terrorist content.
A site visit is not required.
