Keeping our students safe online
The safety and wellbeing of your children in an online environment is something that we at Glenfield Primary School take very seriously. It is for this reason that we have partnered with Family Zone to provide your children with as safe as environment as possible when they are working online, both within school and within their own home. Each child from Year 3 to 6 is given their own laptop and Glenfield School email address (for their duration at the school), which is monitored by our network and firewalls, as well as their classroom teacher on a daily basis. Students from Year 0 to 3 have classroom Ipads which are also carefully monitored. These boundaries also extend to their home environment, whereby we are able to monitor your child's browsing habits as long as they using their Glenfield School account.
