Montrose School

Online Safety



Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Montrose School. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Online safety incidents are recorded and dealt with swiftly.  Class teacher ensuring online safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. It is important that you speak to your children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online and that you monitor what they are doing when using phones, computers tablets etc.

We send out regular online safety newsletters to support you in keeping children safe outside of school. These can be found on our newsletters page.  The 'Speak Out Stay Safe' programme from the NSPCC offers further advice and guidance on how to keep children safe online.
