Advice on Parental Controls:
In school, we have a variety of filtering systems to ensure that any inappropiate content is blocked. Below is a link with advice on how to set up parental control on your electronic devices. The children are aware to click off anything inappropiate that 'pops up' on the screen. The protocol in school would be to tell an adult if something on the screen has distressed them. Please remind them during online based activities to continue to follow this procedure at home, letting an adult know if this has occured.
