YouTube new parental controls

New controls have been released by YouTube to give parents better filtering management. Previously the only filtering option was ‘Restricted Mode’ which basically meant videos flagged as 18+ were filtered out. Called ‘Supervised Experience’ there are now filters for:

  • Explore – 9+
  • Explore More – 13+
  • Most of YouTube – all videos except 18+ (the current Restricted Mode)

YouTube released a handy explainer video which you can link to from your school website or share via your channels. The link is HERE.

Other external useful links

We also have a few external links which we recommend visiting for more information

Where to go for help

If you are worried about a child being bullied, targeted or feeling unsafe online, there are lots of options of where to go for help:

  • Contact the school, and speak to the child’s form tutor or senior tutor about the issue
  • NSPCC Helpline (Mon-Fri 8am – 10pm, Sat-Sun 9am – 6pm) – 0800 800 5000
