Speak Out, Stay Safe from the NSPCC

Posted on January 17, 2018 by Chartfield School in Special Announcements

As you know, the NSPCC visited our school today and delivered their Speak out, Stay safe assembly to share information with your child 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. 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’.

But, as a charity, they can only provide these vital resources thanks to the financial support and generosity of their supporters.

That’s why we’re raising money to help the NSPCC’s work in school!

Our children will be celebrating A. A. Milne’s birthday on Thursday 18th January which will not only be an exciting day but will also mean they’re raising money for the NSPCC’s vital work and helping keep even more children safe.

Every child that attended the assembly today will receive a thank you in the form of a Speak out. Stay safe. Buddy sticker. We want them to wear it with pride.

And you and your children can be proud of the fact that every penny raised makes a significant difference for children. By supporting the NSPCC we can work together to end child abuse.

Talking about the Underwear Rule with your children

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 ‘The Underwear Rule’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse – without using scary words or even mentioning sex.

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 nspcc.org.uk/pants.
