A tragedy that happened at a school in Surrey county in September 2018 left everyone shook. Frankie Thomas, 15, took her own life after being under the influence of malicious sites demonstrating self-harm and violence.
Why would a fragile teenager have access to such websites?
Turns out, the school filtering software had started to fail a year before the tragic event happened. The students at the school, Frankie Thomas among them, had uncontrolled access to banned websites using school laptops and iPads. During the investigation it was found that the school management was aware of the problem but did nothing to fix it.
