Yesterday, the NSPCC visited school to deliver assemblies to our key stage 1 and 2 children. Their message was very clear! We all have a right to stay safe but if we feel uncomfortable, unhappy or in danger there are things we can and should do: tell a trusted adult or phone Childline on 0800 11 11.
Children in year 5 and 6 learnt even more in their workshop that followed. This was all about what we should do in a range of situations. Our discussions covered a range of issues affecting children all over the U.K. including; neglect, emotional abuse, bullying, cyber-bullying and sexual abuse. Scafell Class will be learning more about how to stay safe when sharing on-line throughout this term.
There is lots of information for children and parents on the NSPCC website: www.nspcc.org.uk
