Change of schools’ web-filtering affecting access to Youtube

On 31 March, Ealing LA will remove an “ALLOW Youtube” web filtering policy which is enforced on all Ealing schools. From this moment onwards most schools will find that Youtube becomes blocked unless they modify their own filtering policy.

Action required: If you want your school to have access to Youtube from 15 April you will need to get your technician / technical support provider to create a policy to allow it.
