A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from the Principal

Our goal is to protect every student from online harm while still allowing them to take advantage of the incredible possibilities the internet has opened up.  That’s why we’ve partnered with Family Zone, New Zealand’s leading provider of cyber safety and digital-awareness tools and services.

Family Zone helps keep kids safe online when they access the internet through the school's network. They can also keep your kids safe when accessing the internet through unsafe networks, such as mobile phone networks and your home WiFi, using their unique Mobile Zone software.

We need your participation to keep our students safe on every device, everywhere.

The school will create a private Family Zone account for every family. You will receive an email from Family Zone with instructions to activate your account but if you would like to get started today use the 'Sign up' button on this website. Once your account is set up, please watch the videos and follow the instructions on this website to install and activate Family Zone’s Mobile Zone software on your children’s devices and customise the settings for your family.  Contact support@familyzone.com at any time if you need assistance.

Once Mobile Zone is activated on a device, the school can manage internet access regardless of network connection, during school hours.  Outside of school hours, management automatically switches to the parents and your settings then apply. You can protect them from accessing harmful content online and apply routines to give devices study and sleep times.

Please read the ‘Costs’ and ‘Policies’ detail linked below which explains how we are distributing Mobile Zone to our community and our expectations for technology being brought to school.

Cyber Safety: It's as easy as 1-2-3.

How does Family Zone Insights work?

Family Zone Insights is a FREE pack available to all families at the school providing them with powerful insights to view internet usage on devices with Mobile Zone activated. This includes snapshots of usage and detailed reports, along with visibility into installed apps and (where activated by parents) device location.

How does this mean for students?

We want to create cyber-safe school communities where students thrive, but we also recognise that implementing Family Zone can be a daunting time for some students. That's why we have created this video to explain what it means in practical terms for students at Family Zone schools.
