Please find the following update from the Ministry of Education:
While students are learning from home, they are away from the online safety and security services provided by Network for Learning (N4L) at Taupo-nui-a-Tia College. Together with N4L and Netsafe, the Ministry of Education have launched www.switchonsafety.co.nz - a free way to block the worst of the web for students.
Follow the instructions to set up a student’s device for safer connectivity while they learn from home.
Please remember, no technical solution is a silver bullet. Whanau should complement this with digital citizenship toolkits provided by Netsafe. Netsafe provides comprehensive support and information to help everyone to stay safe as they work, learn and play online. Netsafe has new and updated resources for parents, whānau and students at https://www.netsafe.org.nz/advice/staying-safe/
