Was West View School right to get under-age pupils banned from Facebook?

A CONCERNED headteacher has had his pupils banned from Facebook to protect them from internet perverts.

Staff from West View Primary School, in Hartlepool, contacted bosses at the social networking site after learning that pupils from the Davison Drive-based school had set up accounts on the website.

Facebook’s terms and conditions state that users have to be at least 13 to set up an account and profile page.

But it has emerged that youngsters have been setting up profiles using false dates of birth while using computers at home.
