Searching the Web
When you are at home, Google search engine may not filter as well as when you are at school. Consider using Kiddle.co as your search engine. It is still a Google Search but it is designed as a safe search for students. (Here are other search engines you could use as a student.)
 
As an older student you may want to ensure you are using a Safe Search. Utilizing Google's "advanced search" you can make your search extremely specific. When using "advanced search" make sure Safe Search is on to filter results.
