St John's School has adopted the Alannah & Madeline Foundation eSmart Digital License for all  Students. This gives an informative, concise and a smoother approach to understanding Cyber Safety with what is and is not safe.


Each student completes a module which runs through a range of different areas. These are the modules that are covered in the online Quiz.

iPad Information

This year St John's has switched on Screen Time. A system built app running natively on your child's iPad. This gives us a detailed report about how the device is used, apps opened and websites visited, any time that you want to see it. Just go to Settings > Screen Time and tap See All Activity under the graph. From there, you can see your child's usage. 

Downtime will be switched ON for all devices being sent home.

iPad Questions

What happens if my child's iPad runs out of storage?

Make sure your child tells their teacher. We anticipate with our growing use of Cloud storage that this shouldn't be the case.

What if I want my child's Screen Lock switched off?

Just come into School and sign a document to say you wish to have it turned off!

Do I need to create an Apple ID for my child's iPad?

No! All account details are taken care of at school and shouldn't be tampered with. If you have any problems please let your child's teacher know. Each Apple ID have 200GB of iCloud storage which is called a managed Apple ID.

What happens if the iPad is broken at home?

If this has occured the best thing to do is be honest and get your child to tell their teacher immediately!

What if my question isn't listed here?
