NSPCC Speak Out Stay Safe Assembly

NSPCC Speak Out Stay Safe Assembly
 
Every two years, the NSPCC visits the school to lead an assembly on Speak Out Stay Safe.
 
Speak out Stay safe is a session available to all primary schools in the UK. It aims to equip a generation of children with the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect. Children are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or Childline. 
 
KS1 Assembly
 
In KS1, the children learnt about keeping private parts 'private' and being confident to say 'No. That's not OK'. They learnt the Childline number: 0800 1111 and what they could call Childline about.  They learnt that Childline was open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
 
KS2 Assembly
 
As with the KS1 assembly, the children learnt about the helpline: the number to call; an easy way of remembering it and that there is no issue too big or too small that can't be discussed on the helpline. Childline ALWAYS want to hear from you!
 
As well as contacting the helpline, the children generated a list of all the many people in their lives (at home and school) that they can tell if something was worrying or upsetting them with the aid of some giant building blocks!!
 
Also, the children learnt about how it is quite normal for children and parents to fight at home. However, physical and verbal abuse are different to this and not acceptable. The helpline and adults listed will always be happy to help with this.
