Speak out. Stay safe (3rd Oct - 4th Oct 2016)
The NSPCC visited our school this week and delivered their Speak out. Stay safe. assembly to share information with Year 1-Year 6 pupils about how they can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries. It was a very worthwhile and empowering session for both pupils and teachers. They spoke to the children and staff about the valuable work they do across the country, and talked about how important it is for everyone in our school community to join them in their ‘fight for every childhood’.
The NSPCC’s work in schools will help encourage conversations about staying safe – and they have a number of child-friendly materials to help you carry on the conversation afterwards.
That includes ‘The Underwear Rule’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse – without using scary words or adult language. The guide uses the rules of PANTS to teach children that their body belongs to them and them alone.
