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.
