As technology becomes an integral part of education, ensuring the safety and security of our students' devices is of paramount importance. We are committed to creating a safe digital learning environment that promotes responsible device usage, both within and outside the school premises. We will be addressing the critical aspect of device safety within the Secondary Laptop Program (SLP).

Our approach to device safety

  1. Comprehensive protection
    The Secondary Laptop Program prioritises the safety of our students by implementing robust safety measures. We are partnering with the Qoria (formally known as FamilyZone) suite of products to ensure comprehensive protection against cyber threats and inappropriate online content.
  2. Linewize integration
    We have integrated Linewize, a cutting-edge cybersecurity solution, to safeguard our students' laptops from potential online risks. Linewize's advanced features provide real-time monitoring, web filtering, and threat detection, helping us create a safe and focused online space, while retaining the flexibility necessary for learning.
  3. Qustodio for enhanced supervision
    Our commitment to student safety extends beyond the school's physical boundaries. Our SLP devices allow for parents and guardians to personalise device usage outside of school with tools to manage screen time, monitor activity, and further protect against unsafe online interactions. Qustodio can be accessed via our Cybersafety Hub. Under the 'My School Offer', Qustodio offers family protection for two personal devices in addition to the coverage already provided for their school device.

  • Informed supervision
    Powered by Qustodio, parents and guardians get filtering, reporting and alerts on their children's use of the internet and apps at home, allowing them to shape and guide their child's digital development and wellbeing.
