Apple Devices
To use Parental Control restrictions, you need to enable them in Settings. It does involve creating a passcode to prevent anyone else altering your settings. However, once you’ve got everything set up according to your child’s age and temperament, and your own personal preferences, you can let them use an iOS device without having to worry so much that they’ll see or hear anything inappropriate, change anything they shouldn’t be changing, or buy anything they shouldn’t be buying — including in-app purchases!

Set up a passcode

  1. Go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode.
  2. On devices without Touch ID, go to Settings > PasscodeTap Turn Passcode On.Enter a six-digit passcode.
  3. Enter your passcode again to confirm it and activate it.

To change your Restrictions passcode after you turn on Restrictions, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Restrictions.
  2. Enter your current Restrictions passcode.
  3. Tap Disable Restrictions, then enter your Restrictions passcode again.
  4. Tap Enable Restrictions, then enter a new Restrictions passcode.

At Bonners CE Primary School, we take One-safety extremely seriously. We believe that it is the right of all children to feel safe and secure when using technology.

We teach children to use the internet and other technologies safely, and we show them how to behave in an appropriate manner. They know what to do if they feel uncomfortable with anything they see or hear either online or through other technology such as mobile phones. We have a simple procedure which we hope is also used at home:

If anything makes you feel scared or uncomfortable online tell a responsible adult straight away. Don't be afraid you will get into trouble.

It is important to encourage a healthy lifestyle with regard to the use of technology, and teach children about the risks of exposure to inappropriate content or too much time in front of a screen.

We show children how to keep their data and security safe, and we teach them to be critical of the things they see online.

Our e-safety policy hold detailed information about how we ensure our children remain safe in their use of technology.
