“The best learning will happen in an environment that is protected from the worst of the web and free from content that is inappropriate and distracting.”

Nicola Ngarewa
Principal of Spotswood College

Switch on Safety

When ākonga learn from home, it’s important to make sure they stay safe online. We have a free filter for whanāu to use to block the worst of the web at home.

Other ways to stay safe

There’s unfortunately no way to guarantee 100% protection from inappropriate content or online threats, as both the threat landscape and technology solutions are constantly evolving. While our team is here to support you, it’s important that you also take the necessary steps to ensure your school has a strong cybersecurity posture, such as promoting digital citizenship and making sure systems and software are up to date.

We recommend exploring additional measures to help keep your online learning environment safe and secure. Netsafe has a large suite of helpful resources for schools and kura, written for both students and teachers, on areas such as digital citizenship and planning. CERT NZ also has practical information to keep your school network secure, like making sure your software is up to date. And the Ministry of Education suggests some important actions to help strengthen cybersecurity and reduce your risks.
