This week, children in Years 1 – 6 have taken part in the NSPCC Speak Out, Stay Safe assembly and activities. They were introduced to Buddy, who is a speech bubble representing the right that all children have to speak out and stay safe.
At an age appropriate level, children were reminded:
- of the types of abuse
- that abuse is never a child’s fault
- that they have the right to get help if they need it
- who to talk to if they need help and their Special 5 (trusted adults)
- of the Childline number (0800 1111) and how to access support
Here are some examples of the children’s thoughtful work following the sessions.
