Certified Under UK Guidance

In recent years, the British government has regularly updated and strengthened the guidance that schools are expected to follow to safeguard the children who are in their care. Schools that relied on Opendium solutions stood in good stead in the face of the new guidance, as it largely codified the good practice that we were already promoting.

UTM is compliant with the Department for Education's Keeping Children Safe in Education statutory guidance, the Home Office's Prevent Duty and is certified as meeting the requirements of the UK Safer Internet Centre's Appropriate Filtering for Education Settings.

We also work closely with the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and the Counter Terrorist Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU) to support their work and protect our customers, and the people under their care, from illegal child abuse images and unlawful terrorist content.
