    Question Pinterest

    Currently we have a full filter block on Pinterest within our school but we have recently been asked by the Art department (via SLT) to see if we can lift this.

    Having done a little research it seems whilst Pinterest does have a policy for acceptable pins and does moderate to some extent they allow certain types of nudity for "artistic" reasons. One of the common complaints seems to be what is artistic nudity and how far can people go with it? Other comments suggest that pins are not moderated until a complaint has been made about the pin and therefore inappropriate images can still get on there anyway.

    On top of all this they have policy of nobody under the age of 13 is allowed to use the site meaning we would have to change our filter policies to be based upon age.

    Therefore I was wondering if you block or allow Pintrest within your schools?

    We had a similar request by an Art teacher. We've unblocked just her page, so she can moderate the content available. We had to unblock:
    • passets-ak.pinterest.com
    • passets-cd.pinterest.com
    • passets-ec.pinterest.com
    • pinterest.com/username

    and that seems to work well enough.

    Sorry for the delay, been a busy few weeks!

    Well I tried that and it seems to work a treat. Have given staff full access to Pinterest (at the request of SLT). Setup a free business account for the school to control the boards and assign permissions to the staff. Then allowed students to only visit the school pages. Seems to have kept everyone happy!
