Internet Matters

Software to help you

 

We do not allow mobile phones in school, which combats phone bullying here, but we know that mobiles are used outside school. You can help your child by using an Android App which blocks the bully's number, so you don't have to receive unwanted texts or calls. The bully doesn't know that their number is blocked. It is now a free app. Click the link to find out more.

This software blocks inappropriate websites, including pornographic ones. It also monitors emails and social networks for unsuitable content, grooming phrases, sex words and other danger words.
