We were very fortunate to have recieved a visit from the NSPCC who delivered two amazing assemblies on Speaking Out and Staying Safe. KS2 also took part in a workshop following on from what they learned in assembly. The assembly shared information with the children 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 ‘Talk PANTS’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse.
