NSPCC: Helping children to stay safe
Today we had a special assembly from the NSPCC: Speak Out. Stay Safe.
This morning the NSPCC visited Meadow Vale to deliver their Speak Out. Stay Safe. assembly to share information on how children can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries.
The NSPCC website has some really useful information on keeping children safe from talking PANTS to approaching difficult issues, they have a range of tips and advice to help you keep children safe whether they’re at home, out and about or online. For more information please visit the NSPCC website: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/
Additionally Net Aware is a simple no-nonsense tool to for parents to guide them through social media, apps and games that young people use.
If you’d like more free online safety advice, you can always get in touch with the O2 NSPCC Advice Line on 0800 800 5002. They are open Monday to Friday, between 9am and 7pm.
As a charity the NSPCC can only provide these vital resources thanks to the financial support and generosity of their supporters. I am delighted to say that our school has chosen to support the valuable work of the NSPCC this term by taking part in a fundraising event, and I would really value your support and encouragement. Our event, a 'Danceathon, will take place on Friday 24th May.
