Empowering Children to Speak Out and Stay Safe

This week the NSPCC visited Forest Park to talk about their Speak Out, Stay Safe campaign.

The campaign aims to equip a generation of children with the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect. Children are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or Childline. 

The trained NSPCC volunteers and staff delivered an assembly and workshop with the help of their mascot, Buddy the speech bubble.  Buddy believes that children should be able to speak out to someone if they're worried or unhappy.

During the workshop, the children in Year 5 and 6 explored the definitions of abuse in greater depth. They took part in engaging activities and exercises, including looking at different scenarios and deciding whether they are OK or not OK.

The aim of the assembly and workshops is to support our school safeguarding duties but also to help children feel empowered by understanding that all children have the right to speak out and be heard, to be safe and to get help when they need it.

As an independent charity, which receives around 90% of its funding from supporters, they rely on the support of people like us to make sure they can keep every child who needs us safe.  Every pound raised and every penny received will help make sure they can reach more children.

With that in mind, we have set children a 10 Days of Kindness Challenge. Each day over the half-term holiday we would like the children to carry out an act of kindness. For each act of kindness completed, we would like the children to receive £1. Please encourage your child to carry out as many acts of kindness as possible, therefore, raising lots of money to support this great cause.  We will be awarding certificates to those who have shown the most acts of kindness.
