Teaching pupils to stay safe
It’s been a very busy year for NSPCC Schools Service in our area.
Our volunteers visited 23 schools and spoke to 8,204 children through our Speak Out Stay Safe programme across Peterborough.
Our Speak Out Stay Safe programme ensures children aged five to 11 learn essential safeguarding information in a lively, interactive and memorable way.
By the end of our visit we know pupils feel empowered and can speak out and stay safe.
Thanks to the efforts of volunteers we can provide assemblies and workshops to help children understand abuse in all its forms, know how to protect themselves, and to identify their trusted adults and sources of help available to them, including our Childline service.
Our fully trained volunteers truly believe that every child has the right to a happy childhood and help empower children to have the knowledge and understanding to stay safe from abuse and neglect.
These fantastic volunteers have worked extremely hard and their commitment to helping children is impressive.
The difference they have made to children’s lives is huge and I would like to thank them for their time and energy over the past year and look forward to working with them in the new school year.
If you would like to help children and empower school communities to fight for every child to have a happy childhood, then please get in touch with me via the e mail address below to find out more about joining our team.
