Speak up. Stay safe Assembly
Speak up, 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.
