||A major contributor to this article appears to have a close connection with its subject. (August 2010)|
The West Sussex Grid for Learning (WSGfL) was launched by West Sussex County Council (WSCC), as part of the National Grid for Learning initiative. The National Grid for Learning (NGfL) was a United Kingdom Government-funded gateway to educational resources on the Internet. It featured many individually selected links to resources and materials deemed to be of high quality.
At the time of the launch, the WSGfL website was dedicated to the learning community of West Sussex - which included teachers, pupils, non-teaching staff and parents. However, the WSGfL is now much more. The WSGfL provides a filtered broadband connection, network services, online content and communities for all schools across West Sussex.
