You going to need enable Content Advisor to show up in IE properties, then you can define content and websites someone can see or not.
If you do this using Group Policy then is going to be propagated to Group where this policy will be applied to.

You can test it locally first then propagate via GPO.
Here is the link how to enable Advisor

Another option - many firewalls have a web filtering option (as an annual subscription) with reporting.
Here is an example:
