A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Shire Christian School

In working with Family Zone our goal is to protect our students from exposure to online threats, to assist them with time management and help them focus.

You will receive an Activation Email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account and commence protecting your children's devices. If you already have a Family Zone account, the school laptop will be connected to your existing account.

If you do not receive that email or need more assistance, please email support@familyzone.com

When you receive the email, simply click on the link ‘Complete Setup’ and then follow the prompts to create your Family Zone account.

Once your account is activated, you can log in to your Family Zone account via ‘My account’ (top right hand corner of this website).

What do you need to do?

1

Wait for the activation email from Family Zone, then activate your account.

2

Install Mobile Zone on the devices that you wish to protect. Your school has already installed Mobile Zone on your school device.

3

Manage via our Zone Manager App. Download to your own Apple or Android device.
