At The Mall, we have a web filtering system which blocks inappropriate websites and modifies search results. The deputy head is notified when a pupil tries to access or search for something inappropriate and where necessary parents are informed. The work we do as part of our Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum and digital skills lessons reinforce the message about staying safe online and not accessing unsuitable websites. We would strongly encourage you to talk to your children about this topic and also to install parental controls on televisions, laptops and other electronic devices. The NSPCC website has some excellent advice on how to do this.
