What is the Medway Grid for Learning?
The Medway Grid for Learning (MGfL) is a secure private network
connecting school local area networks (LAN) to the Medway Council
network, enabling schools to access a number of services that they
would otherwise need to purchase and manage independently.
The MGfL is much more than just a broadband connection with
'pupil friendly' filtering. It is about schools being able to
participate in developing and evolving the service, and about
schools helping and supporting each other by the simple investment
of knowledge and experience. It is also about the reassurance
that school staff opening their email from within a Medway school
can be assured that the data is viewed over a private network and
therefore provides increased security.
Being part of the MGfL also provides access to resources from
the SEGfL, LGfL and the NEN.
Remember that MGfL isn’t just an Internet connection – it also
connects schools to each other and to Medway Council sites
directly, and has significant levels of access to the services
essential for the smooth running of the school.
