I think it's useful with the kids, certainly - a lot of them think that anything done on a computer isn't real, it's all just a game (cf. 90% of Facebook bullying) so explicitly spelling out some rules helps there.
    I like the idea of a summary sheet - might moot that to the powers-that-be

    Gizza kick if you want me to ping over ours as an example... took a bit of cheating with the margins but it does all fit on one page in the end!

    No, you're being a [censored] for no reason. There's a difference. Learn it.

    The point that Tom has raised about the legal nature of AUPs and having children (minors) signing a document is that it is non-enforcable. Dr Brian Bandey (who has written the papers Tom refers to) has been running a closed group in LinkedIn discussing things like this ... and the white papers are available at eSafety in Education | eSafety law | Inappropriate content liability

    Well worth a read, both academically and also to help raise the importance of ensuring people understand why you have policies around safeguarding.

    Probably because it mentions 'proxy' and so is being categorised as a proxy site.

    That's the active content filter that's blocking it. Basically, some of the text on the page is triggering an automated block. I still believe it will be repeated use of the word 'proxy'. If you call SwGFL they should be able to whitelist it for you.
