The NSPCC Schools Service in Durham offers a range of resources to schools. They primarily offer the Speak Out. Stay Safe safeguarding programme to primary schools, which is also offered at no cost to all UK primary schools. NSPCC have worked extensively with Durham primary schools, visiting over 97% of schools in the Durham area.
What is the Speak out. Stay safe. programme?
The Speak out. Stay safe. programme consists of separate assemblies for KS1 and KS2 followed by an hour-long workshop for years 5 and 6. The sessions give children the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect.
With the help of the mascot Buddy, the programme provides child-friendly, age-appropriate interactive assemblies and workshops to help children:
- understand abuse in all its forms
- know how to protect themselves
- know how to access sources of help, including our Childline service.
The Speak Out. Stay Safeprogramme has been designed to link directly to the PSHE curriculum.
