Online Safety

The Internet is a wonderful place to play and learn! From education and exciting games, to live video chat with relatives on the other side of the world, the Internet is an incredible tool that we can use at home, on the go and in school.

In a lot of cases, this has led to "Screen Addiction" without us even realising it. For more detailed information, please visit the Renaissance Place website by clicking HERE. We've also included a video below that some parents may find useful to watch with their children.

It can also be a dangerous place for young people. As well as physical dangers that may arise from sharing personal details on the Internet, your child’s mental health is also at risk.
