A school community approach to cyber safety.

Digital technology has opened up a world of possibilities for our children. At the same time, it has multiplied potential risks.

Our goal is to protect every student from exposure to online threats - from inappropriate content to cyberbullying.  In 2018 Waverley is providing free access to the Family Zone, Mobile Zone product for all families.
 

To complete the circle of safety for your child, however, we need your participation.

By setting up a private Family Zone account, you can apply age-appropriate parental controls on every device your child has access to, in any location.

I urge you to set up your family’s account today by clicking "sign up" below. Only by working together can we meet our digital duty of care - at school, at home, and everywhere in between.
