Does an iPad get viruses? How secure is it? Can my child access inappropriate content?
While using the school network, all online content will be filtered to prevent students accessing inappropriate content. Provision of internet security and appropriate use at home will be the responsibility of families. We encourage parents to discuss expectations with their child regarding appropriate use of the device.
Regarding viruses, the iPad is a very secure device for downloading apps and surfing online. All apps and updates are installed via iTunes and the Apps Store which, at the time of publication, is subject to a very strict approval process by Apple that includes some restrictions on the distribution of inappropriate content and malware.
