On 19th January, the NSPCC (National Society of prevention of Cruelty to children) came to Crab Lane. They initially did two assemblies with KS1 and KS2 and then workshops with Y5 and Y6.
They brought their mascot called "Buddy." He was shaped like a speech mark, as the key message was "Speak Out, Stay Safe." We began the assembly by looking at a sack of worries. The sack was filled with bricks, which represented the different worries a child might have.
We then learnt about the different types of abuse. This included:
The children learnt where they could get help, whether that could be someone in school, at home, or even Childline. (Picture of logo and number) The children were given an important message...
We hope that every child is able to share their thoughts about the day and now feel empowered to feel confident to talk about their worries if need be. Please spend time with your child and have a chat about what they have learnt today.
We thoroughly enjoyed the day and certainly learnt a lot how to keep us safe in the future!
