RE: RAS HOME LEARNING – Cybersecurity for students devices

Kia ora e te whānau

With our children spending more time at home online – this message may help you to find out more about keeping them safe online.

For personal devices, we suggest using Network 4 Learning’s simple but effective content filtering service Switch on safety (link) for students learning from home. We encourage all parents/whānau to take advantage of this free service. It is universally available support for learner devices once they are off our school site and not protected by the school’s internet filtering service.
It’s important to note however that content filters are not complete protection from online harm and should be used in conjunction with other cyber security precautions (for example, anti-virus software) and appropriate supervision.

Of course, you can always seek advice from your child’s classroom teacher or our school ICT Coordinator, Jake Fyalka. 

Stay safe. Stay well. Stay connected
