I believe that a site has been wrongly categorised can I get it unblocked?
The content filtering system is provided by an independent third-party called Palo Alto, which classifies websites into categories based on its own guidelines. A request can be put forward to Palo Alto to change a site categorisation.
Sites relating to the following are blocked by default; abused/illegal drugs, adult content (pornography), hacking and malware, violence, hate and racism, proxy avoidance, criminal and illegal skills. Information about how Palo Alto manages the categorisation can be found here: Content Filtering Categories
