Posted on 25/05/2023 13:07:24

Further to their webinars earlier this month, Schools Broadband have announced further webinars on Wednesday, June 21st for Schools/Academies.

Details of the webinar and joining details are as follows:

Choosing the Right Broadband Partner for Education

Capita Updata is ceasing all connectivity, filtering & security services to schools by March 2024, meaning you will need to organise a replacement service.  We know for some, organising the service transfer is a daunting prospect.  Attending this webinar will prove invaluable, whoever you choose as your new provider.

The webinar will cover:

  • Your Broadband options
  • Why Safeguarding & Security is at the Heart of what we do
  • DfE and Prevent Duty compliant Safeguarding Platform to support DSLs
  • How our customers are fully protected from DDoS attacks
  • How we give you control to make web filtering changes
  • Why we have faster response & resolution times
  • How our high availability & redundant systems keep you connected 24/7/365
  • How we can support any Capita Updata early termination fees with up to 6 months free
  • Answering any of your questions

The lead time for a replacement service in some cases can take up to six months. Ensure you allow plenty of time when ordering to allow for a seamless transfer of service.  Schools Broadband provides services to over 2000 schools and 275 Multi Academy Trusts and is one of the most respected specialist providers of services to education.

Places are limited so please register early using the session links below:

10-11am session

Connect the Classroom is a program funded by the Department for Education (DfE) that aims to help schools across the country to access an effective and comprehensive, education-focused wireless networking solution.

Norfolk, with Norwich in particular, is one of the counties that are seen as a priority area. 

The Connect the Classroom programme is open to the following: 

If you are eligible for this funding, your school will have received an email directly from the DfE inviting you to join the programme and advise on next steps. Alternatively, if you have not received an invite and feel you meet the criteria, please email the DfE at
