    At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old man - is this not where we have the wrong slant on the world = a kid searches for and prints out pron when he should be working - but its the school, not the kid, who gets a clip round the ear (metaphorically)

    She obviously has nothing better to do... maybe the child should not be looking for porn in school.

    Do you seriously believe that any teacher is able to supervise everything that every pupil does all the time?

    I've no idea what exactly happened here - it could be that the teacher concerned wasn't doing their job properly but this is the kind of thing which is very, very difficult to prevent.

    I doubt there's a single school in the country where anyone knows what's happening at every minute in every classroom (and I don't actually think we would want that to happen!)

    The head's comments that she's going to keep the IT room closed until she can be sure it's safe are just the sort of thing designed to keep the papers happy - there's no way you can do that short of just having a basic whitelist of sites which the children are allowed to use - and even then, some parents wouldn't be happy with what they're allowed to see!

    I don't think it is possible for teachers to know exactly what children are doing all the time, BUT they should be aware of what is going on all around an IT suite. Our IT teachers never stay in one place other than when demonstrating something, and there is always a teaching assistant circling the room as well to check on what is being done.
    As our printer is in the suite, any child printing something off would be immediately obvious!

    thought he was doing the right thing when he showed his mother what he had been getting up to at school.
    seems an unlikely explanation.

    he tapped the word porn into an internet search engine.
    The school has admitted problems with software which is meant to block access to adult sites.
    "problems"? that's a bit more than a "problem" if you ask me!

    Her ten year old typing the word 'porn' into a search engine?! She's the one who needs taking outside and slapping, the stupid bovine.

    Bet the little d!pstick has a computer in his bedroom and he's allowed to look at all sorts of carp.

    Stupid people.

    when he tapped the word porn into an internet search engine.
    Our AUP clearly shows a distinction between accidental access and deliberate misuse. - This falls into the latter.

    Thats a joke right? "Hey mum look what I managed to print off at school" thats never happened in a million years, unless 10 year old kids really openly discuss such material with thier parents these days, now I'm not that old and it certainly wouldn't have happened when I was at school.
