Switch on Safety

When ākonga learn from home, it’s important to make sure they stay safe online. To Switch on Safety, you need to change the ‘DNS’ setting on your child’s device. 

Our free safety filter can be set up on your child’s device to block the worst of the web.

Network for Learning (N4L) is a crown company that connects all schools and kura across Aotearoa to safe and reliable internet through our Managed Network. We’re one of the largest networks of our kind in the world, and our aim is to support all ākonga to learn safely online.

Upgrading School Wi-Fi 

To give ākonga a safer, more seamless Wi-Fi experience throughout the school or kura, we’re extending the Managed Network into classrooms by replacing network equipment as part of the Ministry of Education’s Te Mana Tūhono programme.

Supporting schools & kura

We work alongside our government, education and technology partners on ways to improve the safety and security of online learning environments in schools and kura.


We’re helping schools get ready for NCEA Online Exams in 2021. With many schools using digital technology for teaching and learning, there is an increasing appetite from students to sit their exams online.
