Remote Learning – Parental Controls & Social Media


The e-Safety Commissioner offers the best advice to help parents monitor their child’s activity, as well as ensure only safe websites are accessed: e-Safety Taming Technology. Also, ask your Internet Service Provider (ISP) such as Telstra or Optus.

How do I monitor my child's social media use when I am also working?

  • In line with our College policy on mobile phone use, we encourage families to limit their child’s access to mobile phones whilst student learning is taking place.
  • We encourage parents who are working to consider options for working from home, or where this is not possible, to check in regularly throughout the day with their child’s progress.
  • Flexible school learning times may also enable students to engage in their learning when parent supervision is available.
  • Parental controls installed on your child’s computer may also limit access to non-school activities whilst students are online.
  • Using a family space for extended learning, not a bedroom, will also assist the monitoring of online activity. It should be a place that can be quiet at times and have a strong wireless internet signal, if possible. Above all, it should be a space where you or another adult is present and monitoring your children's learning.
