Workshops run by NSPCC helped Junior Boys and Junior Girls at Bolton School to learn about abuse and neglect as well as teaching them the importance of speaking out and staying safe.

With help from the NSPCC mascot Buddy the speech bubble, specially trained volunteers explained different kinds of bullying and abuse, including neglect and sexual abuse, in a lively and age-appropriate way. Pupils considered a varied range of situations, decided whether they are okay or not okay and shared their thoughts with the group.

They also learned about Childline and the support it offers, as well as memorising the telephone number (0800 1111) through a series of actions.

In lessons, the girls and boys completed their personal ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ kit to act as a reminder of everything they learned from the workshops.
