Welcome back to a new academic year!

Aspire Vision Statement

 
Here at Probus we take e-Safety extremely seriously. It can all be a bit of a minefield, both in keeping up with your child's IT habits and skills and navigating what's appropriate and what's not on the great world wide web.  We thought a few pointers might come in useful for our parents so below is a wealth of info which we will of course keep regularly updated.

Research in America has identified potential warning signs for children with obsessive internet use as detailed in brief below:

  • Loses track of time while online
  • Sacrifices needed hours of sleep to spend time online
  • Becomes agitated or angry when online time is interrupted
  • Becomes irritable if not allowed to access the internet
  • Prefers to spend time online rather than with friends or family
