The NSPCC’s Speak out. Stay safe. programme visited our school on Monday 3rd July to make sure our pupils have the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse.
The entire Manor team are pleased to tell you that we will be working with the NSPCC, the UK’s leading children’s charity, who’ll be delivering their Speak out. Stay safe. programme on Monday 3rd July 2017. This is a nationwide programme for every primary-school-aged child in the UK and Channel Islands. With the help of their friendly mascot Buddy, they’ll be presenting an assembly for the entire school and workshops for our Year 5 and 6 pupils.
What is the Speak out. Stay safe. programme?
Through child-friendly, interactive assemblies and workshops their specially trained staff and volunteers gave our children information about how to keep themselves safe from harm and how to get help if they have any worries, sensitively discussing issues like bullying and sexual abuse, without using scary words or adult language. The children participated well and were keen to engage with the hands-on activities.
