NSPCC Workshops

Yesterday saw a visit from the NSPCC who delivered an excellent assembly raising awareness of their ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ campaign. The assembly told children about how they can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries. It was a great session for both pupils and teachers as we found out more 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’. Their message of speaking out tied in perfectly with our own ‘Upstanders’ agenda and lots of the children were able to name a whole host of adults they could talk to if they were worried, from parents and grandparents to school staff and policemen. The NSPCC’s work in schools will help encourage conversations about staying safe – and they have a number of child-friendly materials to help with those conversations. That includes ‘The Underwear Rule’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe without using scary words. The guide uses the rules of PANTS to teach children that their body belongs to them and them alone. You can find out more and download the free resources at www.nspcc.org.uk/pants
