Global block

 

The BLN globally blocked www.moviestarplanet.com for all schools several weeks ago after concerns were raised over the chat functionality built into the site.

As schools have access to block / allow sites, some schools may have decided to overrule our global block and allow access to their pupils.  We strongly advise you to re-consider allowing the above site until more robust practices are put in place to monitor the built in chat functionality.

 

If your school is able to access the site and would like it to be blocked, please contact the helpdesk on 01274 385800 who can do this for you
