In March the NSPCC came into school and completed their Speak Out Stay Safe sessions with the children. Their trained volunteers worked with the children through interactive sessions and assemblies. The purpose of their work is to equip the children with the knowledge and understanding that they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect. The children were taught to speak out if they are worried, to either a trusted adult or Child line.
All the children engaged really well in the child-friendly and engaging workshops. With the help of Buddy the speech bubble children were left empowered to speak out if needed. We really hope they took a lot away from the sessions and can carry these skills through the rest of the childhood and into their adult years.
If you have any questions or would like more information on the NSPCC's Speak Out and Stay Safe programme please visit their website https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/our-services/working-with-schools
or come into school and speak to a member of staff.
There is also a great website the NSPCC have out together, Net Aware which is a simple guide to the social networks our children use: https://www.net-aware.org.uk
