Announcement : 

Samoan Language Week – 27th to 31st May 2024

Cyber Security

As part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring students’ safety and well-being, we’re proud to announce that we will be introducing cyber safety approaches and technologies in partnership with Linewize by Family Zone.

Linewize is New Zealand’s leading provider of cyber safety technology. The Linewize technology will allow our school to better maintain our duty of care during school hours by ensuring the students are safe online no matter what network they are connected to.

This supports our legal responsibility to keep students safe and will allow us to ensure that students are entirely focused on their learning whilst at school. One of the key reasons we selected Linewize by Family Zone is so our parent community has the option of using the same online safety technology at home as we will use in school.

The cyber safety hub provided by Linewize helps parents to understand the online space and it strengthens the relationship between school and home as we work together to support our tamariki in becoming outstanding digital citizens.

Newly-migrated Online Safety Hub

We are pleased to announce that our Online Safety Hub is now live and includes access to the Qustodio Parent app.  We invite you to join us in further building healthy digital habits and a safe online environment for your child by creating your own Qustodio account to use at home across two devices free of charge. 

 

Key features include:

  • Filter and block apps and content that you don’t want your child to see
  • Customise what your child can access during homework hours
  • Balance screen time by setting time limits on devices as well as for specific apps
  • Protect screen-free moments such as mealtimes and bedtimes.

Please use the  link below to create your Qustodio account through our Online Safety Hub:

Linewise Cyber Safety Hub

Important note – one parent/ guardian needs to create the account in the first instance, and then additional parents/ guardians can be invited and given access to the same features once the account has been created.

As a reminder, you can protect two additional personal devices (phones, shared iPads, etc.)  per family free of charge. 

For any further questions please contact Mangere Bridge School office.

We look forward to continuing to provide you with the best resources for our school communities and encourage you all to utilise the Online Safety Hub – the platform we trust for high-quality online safety education.
