Devices that connect to your home internet or 3G/4G/5G Devices

In addition to content filtering offered by your ISP, many devices such as games consoles, smartphones and tablets have their own parental controls, for example to limit spending or restrict access to apps based on age rating. Likewise, many web browsers have built-in tools and features to help you control the kinds of content users can view. You can find out more about this on the UK Safer Internet Guide here Parents’ Guide to Technology.

If you need any help with setting parental controls on your child's devices please contact you mobile phone operator or ISP first, if you are still having issues or need more advice then please contatc the school who can help.
