Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Montrose. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. All e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed.
All staff in school are responsible for ensuring e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with our families we are giving consistent e-Safety messages. It is important that you speak to your children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
We send out regular newsletters to support families in keeping up-to-date with what their children might be doing and in how to safeguard them against any risks.
The Speak Out Stay Safe programme from the NSPCC offers further advice and guidance on how to keep our children safe online.
