The NSPCC visited the Junior Boys to deliver an important message to the whole school. Karen Wood and Chris Willetts, with the help of NSPCC mascot Buddy, taught pupils to ‘Speak out Stay safe’ through an interactive morning assembly.

The boys learned more about safeguarding in a lively and memorable way. Through the assembly, they gained a better understanding of neglect and abuse in all its forms. This included the vital message that abuse of any kind is not okay, not the child’s fault, and how speaking out to a trusted adult can help to make things better. Pupils suggested people who might be trusted adults, such as teachers, parents and carers, neighbours and sports coaches. They also learned about the 24-hour service Childline provides and how to ‘sign’ the Childline number to help them remember it.

After assembly, pupils in Year 5 and Year 6 took part in workshops. Karen and Chris reinforced the messages given in assembly before discussing a number of issues. They talked about whether different scenarios are okay, not okay, or somewhere in the middle. Pupils talked to one another about these challenging topics with maturity and gave considered responses.
