NSPCC visit

Heather White came to visit us today to explain what the NSPCC does and why it is so important.

Their motto is ‘speak out and stay safe’

Ms White told us about three important children’s rights:

  • to speak to be heard
  • to be safe
  • to get help when you need it

She showed us the bag of worries and explained how it can get filled and how we can find ways to empty it.

Ms White explained that there are 5 different forms of abuse:

  • Neglect
  • physical abuse
  • emotional abuse
  • sexual abuse
  • bullying

and why abuse is not okay, or a child’s fault.

We shared ideas about who are trusted adults who could help us.

After she spoke to the P4-6s at assembly, all the P6s had a further workshop to discuss and think about lots of safety issues.
