As you know, the NSPCC visited our school Thursday 24th January 2018 and delivered their Speak out. Stay safe. assembly to share information with your child about how they can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries.
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.
The Children will be invited to buy a cake at playtime and lunchtime and wear the colour green on Friday 1st February, which will be fun for our pupils but will also mean they’re raising money for the NSPCC’s vital work and helping keep even more children safe.
Participation is purely voluntary but if you would like to support the NSPCC’s work, it would be fantastic if you could support your child to take part by giving them a silver coin (or two) to donate.
By supporting the NSPCC we can work together to end child abuse.

Talking about the Underwear Rule
The NSPCC’s work in schools will help encourage conversations about staying safe – and they have a number of child-friendly materials to help you carry on the conversation afterwards. That includes ‘The Underwear Rule’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse – without using scary words or even mentioning sex.
The guide uses the rules of PANTS to teach children that their body belongs to them and them alone. You can find out more and download the free resources at nspcc.org.uk/pants
