Located in Manchester, UK, Swinton High, like many other schools, was looking for new ways to prevent its students from accessing inappropriate material online – without negatively impacting their learning experience. With approximately 600 pupils attending from between the ages of 11 and 16, it needed a solution it could trust to do the job.
Network administrator, Paul Jackson, explains: “At previous school sites, I have used AB Tutor and Impero. I personally find NetSupport DNA to be a more powerful tool, partly because it seems to be a far more flexible solution.”
He also comments: “I have found the [NetSupport] support team to be very proactive and extremely helpful. This in itself places NetSupport leagues ahead of other products in terms of being a viable solution; my past experiences with competitors have been far less positive overall.”
And explaining how DNA has helped at the school, he says: “NetSupport DNA allows the teaching staff to keep a closer eye on what pupils are accessing online, as well as highlight any safeguarding issues they are facing … It has also made it easier to monitor power consumption and put policies into place which contribute to the conservation of energy, thus saving money for the school.”
