As part of our school Safety Week, we had an assembly this morning about how to help protect children from any type of abuse. The assembly was delivered by the NSPCC, a charity that is ‘taking on the fight for every childhood’.
We talked about how hard it is for children to carry around a sack of worries and what children can do when their sack is too heavy to bear. One of the most important things we talked about was how we should tell a trusted adult whenever something is troubling us; another thing we talked about was Childline, a free, private and confidential helpline that children can use if they need someone to talk to. The number is 0800 1111.
Thank you for coming to our schoo, NSPCC!
