NSPCC Share Aware 6/02/18
The NSPCC’s ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ programme is visiting our school to make sure our pupils have the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse.
I am pleased to tell you that we will be working with the NSPCC, the UK’s leading children’s charity, who will be delivering their ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ programme on Tuesday 6th February. This is a nationwide programme for every primary-school-aged child in the UK. With the help of their friendly mascot Buddy, they’ll be presenting an assembly and workshop to the children in our school.
“NSPCC has helped me to build the confidence to tell people about my worries and problems.” Child’s feedback
What is the ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ programme?
Through child-friendly, interactive assemblies and workshops their specially trained staff and volunteers will give our children information about how to keep themselves safe from harm and how to get help if they have any worries. They sensitively discuss issues like bullying and sexual abuse, without using scary words or adult language.
We have seen the content of the materials and are confident that they are appropriate for primary-school-aged children. By the end of their visit, we are convinced children will feel empowered – knowing how they can speak out and stay safe.
“Presentations and workshops were fun and engaging on a serious topic” – Sibford Junior School, Oxfordshire
If you would like any more information about the NSPCC ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ programme, including frequently asked questions, you can find it on the NSPCC website nspcc.org.uk/schools or please come into speak to me and I can provide more information.
Talking about the Underwear Rule with your children
The NSPCC’s work in schools will help encourage conversations about staying safe and they have a number of child-friendly materials to help you carry on the conversation afterwards. That includes ‘The Underwear Rule’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse, without using scary words or even mentioning sex.
The guide uses the rules of PANTS to teach children that their body belongs to them and them alone. You can find out more and download the free resources at nspcc.org.uk/pants

Three Streatley boys did brilliantly this weekend. It was a great day and they all came back with medals and victories. Cai won both his matches against boys with orange belts (two belts above him) and romped proudly home with his gold medal and showed great sportsmanship when he hurt one of his opponents. Catrin was so proud she burst into tears 😊. Adam (Cai’s dad).
