With schools having to turn to remote learning to continue the education of students, Family Zone would like to help empower schools & parents to achieve the shared goal of keeping students safe and on-task online.
What we are offering
We are offering our filtering services to all Australian and New Zealand schools and their parents for no cost, until the end of Term 2, 2020. These tools will ensure students stay safe and focussed online while studying from home. We are able to achieve this by deploying filtering tools for both school-owned devices and BYO devices. The benefits of employing these technologies are threefold;
Protecting School-owned Devices
To protect school-owned devices your school will need to have:
Protecting BYO Devices
Schools will be able to support their parent community by offering free protection for children's devices. This will be optional for parents and is achieved by parents installing the Family Zone Insights tool, which will then apply the school's internet policies during the school's remote learning hours - eliminating digital distractions and protecting from harmful content.
Parents Guide to Remote Learning
Your parents will have access to practical video resources to help guide and support them during remote learning. These have been developed in conjunction with leading cyber safety experts, endorsed by The Office of the eSafety Commissioner.
If you would like to register your interest in either or both of these offers, please select from one of the two options below.

The visibility provided by Family Zone's analytics helps Pastoral care to mature the student’s ability to self-regulate and facilitates informed conversations with parents. The resulting reduced administrative burden allows a refocus of ICT to better support compliance and value-add services.- Hugo van Niekerk, IT Director, Mazenod College
We wanted to ensure safe internet access when students are on and off the school network, at home, or on mobile data. Family Zone provides a holistic solution to solve this problem- Kurt Kennedy, Deputy Principal, Aquinas College
