I have been informed that if someone uses a VPN connection on my broadband that any child safe settings are ineffective. Is this correct?
WebSafe is only a basic offering, you don't even have to go the lengths of getting a VPN client installed then finding provider service for it to connect it to. Just change the DNS on a device and voila, no WebSafe limitations.

in a windows PC yes, restrict users to a standard user account and password protect the admin account for your own use only. I am pretty sure that locks users out of changing network properties. it also has strong anti-malware benefits
for phones/ tablets- use the equivalent e,g, Kindle free time
PS open DNS, with customisable family filters - , is free and far better than child safe
