Avon House is participating in the NSPCC’s ‘Speak out. Stay safe.’ programme this term. Speak out. Stay safe. is a programme for children aged 5-11 which aims to help children understand abuse in all its forms and to recognise the signs of abuse. Children are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a safe adult or Childline. For children under the age of 5, there is the NSPCC Talk Pants which provides simple but important messages to help children to understand how to keep safe from sexual abuse. This child friendly programme is aligned with the curriculum and consists of age-appropriate virtual assemblies and supporting classroom-based activities which we have reviewed. The content is delivered in an engaging and interactive way with the help of the NSPCC mascot Buddy.
Our pupils all viewed the content that is relevant to their age group this morning as part of the programme. If you would like to know more about the Speak out. Stay safe. programme visit www.nspcc.org.uk/speakout
