Internet and E-Safety
E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Lower Darwen Primary School. We have extensive security measures in place in school to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Internet and 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 parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
Banning the internet or technology does not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential. Our safer internet/online use policy can be downloaded below.
