Internet filtering tools in your home 

When your child connects their device to the school network, the department’s web filtering system protects them from malicious web content and inappropriate websites. To help protect your child when they return to your home internet connection, it is recommended you install some level of internet filtering. 

Unfortunately, filtering and monitoring systems are not foolproof and do not replace the need for parental supervision when children are online. It is important to set clear rules for where your child uses devices within your home, what sites and online activities they can access, and who they are connecting with online. 

There are tools and services that parents can use to help them understand what information is being accessed. Good monitoring and use of devices helps parents and children to learn and discuss what is right. 

Google Safe Search 

Google’s SafeSearch facility is a free feature within the Google search engine. When it is activated within an internet browser, sites that Google considers inappropriate are filtered from search results. Enabling this feature can remove inappropriate content, such as pornography, from search results
