Staying Safe

At Montem Academy the safety of all of our pupils is paramount. We aim to ensure that all of our children     are able to recognise the dangers that surround them, including the inappropriate use of mobile technology and social media. Montem has a comprehensive programme of event days, workshops and   assemblies, which aim to teach our children how to keep safe at all times.
