Today, we hosted two assemblies for our Early Years/Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils in conjunction with NSPCC and their Speak Out Stay Safe campaign. Children learnt about different types of abuse and how to Speak Out to keep themselves Safe. We discussed the ways pupils can speak out at Walkley Primary School; these include speaking to a trusted adult directly, sharing concerns with the Pastoral Team via the thoughts and feelings boxes in their classrooms, safeguarding assemblies and every child's right to phone Childline. Childline is a free phone number where children can speak to a NSPCC trained counsellor.
These messages are in line with the Citizenship curriculum and are reinforced in Citizenship lessons and in classes throughout the year and right across school.
