    As you say, one person's art is another person's p__n, which is why two people should review each image on a case-by-case basis, thus accounting for these different interpretations and allowing for context.

    Context is everything here. Some photos of topless women (or whatever) are undeniably inappropriate, but this doesn't mean they all are.

    IT support are usually contacted by the teacher who has found something, either to block the site or conduct an investigation into the student's account to see if there are further AUP violations. So we may as well be involved in deciding the acceptability of the image/site, this way we at least find out the decision.

    If you can bring a copy of the sun into school then the answer would be yes.

    If we find partially-clad/unclad images in pupils' folders and the pupils argue that they're not offensive images, we just ask them "Would your mother approve of this?". The answer is invariably "No" so they then get deleted.

    You might be better using a phrase on the lines of at the discretion of the senior management team. Then you have some latitude and can put things into context.

    For example one of our students had a picture of his mum feeding his baby brother and was using it for all about me. I am not sure what my mum would have done if she had caught me bringing nude photos of her into school but the lads mum when questioned did not object.

    Our current phrase is "In all matters that may require subjective interpretation (e.g. indecent images), the College's judgement will be binding."
