No. Girls generally don't hang out in the Computer Lab as much as boys do
hence they don't filter very much.

Im my special case the pupils are from primary school..

Further the main reason for porn filtering is keeping the parents (and
some teachers) happy.

For the German readers: gives a nice overview. An article in the German "Beck's Gesetzes Texte" states that an InterNet-Café has to care and monitor kids that surf. A written permit from the parents that their children might get in conctact with possible porn or hate content is not enough to fulfill the requirements of German Youth protection laws.

What is valid for Internet-Cafés is even more valid for schools.
