Google SafeSearch

 SafeSearch is designed to screen sites that contain sexually explicit content and remove them from your search results. While no filter is 100% accurate, SafeSearch helps you avoid content you may prefer not to see or would rather your children did not stumble across

 By default, Moderate SafeSearch is turned on, which helps keep explicit images out of your search results. If you prefer you can change your setting to Strict filtering to help filter out explicit text as well as images. You can modify your computer’s SafeSearch settings by clicking on Search settings at the top right of the Google homepage

 

A great website designed to help our younger children is Hector the Protector:

This website is aimed for children 5-7 years. Children can watch Hector and his friends and learn how to use their computers safely

Hector's Safety Button can be downloaded onto any computer, 

hector

If the children see something that makes them feel confused or scared when they are using the computer, you can click on Hector (or one of his friends) to cover the screen while they then get some help (from a trusted adult).
