Speak out. Stay Safe Assembly

On Thursday 30th January the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) provided an assembly for key stage 1 and reception.  This was an age appropriate assembly to help the children understand that they need to talk to a grown up if anything is worrying them.  They introduced their mascot Buddy who is a speech bubble.  They explained that Buddy didn't like to see children sad or worried.  The emphasis in the assembly was that children have a right to be happy and safe, and that they should talk to a grown up if they need to.  The children were shown a cartoon video about a child who was worried and then showed another one about what happened when she talked to a grown up about it.  The children were also shown cartoon slides of things that may make them feel worried.  They were also taught the number of childline using actions.
