A school community approach to cyber safety.

A message from Western Grammar School

As announced, we have partnered with Family Zone  to roll out changes to our cyber safety measures at school.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR FAMILIES AT WESTERN GRAMMAR SCHOOL?

Western Grammar School want to ensure that students are protected on the internet, no matter what device they are on or what source of internet they are using.  Therefore we have arranged for parents to have access to Family Zone’s Mobile Zone app .

All families are entitled to a Family Pack to cover your children’s devices,  paid by the school. There is no cost to families.

On 12/APR/2019, if you do not already have a Family Zone account, parents will receive an email from Family Zone inviting you to activate your account and commence protecting your children's devices.

In addition you will receive an invitation for you to take part in a launch webinar to watch a demonstration of Family Zone on 1/MAY/2019.  It will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions &/or get assistance.

 

 

What do you need to do?

1

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

2

Install Mobile Zone on your children's devices, run and install.

3

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