Following the launch of the Friendly WiFi scheme, we are delighted to provide an essential guide for teachers.

Friendly WiFi is the world’s first safe certification standard designed to keep children and young people safe online when they use public WiFi. Friendly WiFi was set up to check that UK venues who offer their guests or customers WiFi, have the right filters in place, to block people from viewing child abuse websites and pornography.

This document gives guidance on helping students understand how Friendly WiFi can protect them and is also a useful tool to share with parents about the scheme.
