AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION AND N4L
When children learn from home, it’s important to make sure they stay safe online. Here’s a simple, FREE way to block the worst of the web. To Switch on Safety, you need to change the ‘DNS’ setting on your child’s device. Simple instructions on how to do this are outlined below. Just click on the type of device your child uses below.

Safety can’t be provided by technology alone – it requires a holistic approach. For tips and advice to support online safety conversations with your whānau check out Netsafe.
When a Windows or Mac OS device has the Switch on Safety settings applied, they may conflict with the school’s network settings when your child returns. If this is an issue, we recommend seeking advice from the school’s IT Lead.
