Buddy's Big Workout

Today all our children are doing Buddy's big workout to raise money for the NSPCC. 

The NSPCC visited our school last Monday and delivered their Speak out. Stay safe assembly to share information with the children about how they can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries.

It was a very worthwhile and empowering session for both pupils and teachers. The NSPCC spoke to the children and staff about the valuable work they do across the country, and talked about how important it is for everyone in our school community to join them in their ‘fight for every childhood’.

As a charity, the NSPCC can only provide these vital resources thanks to the financial support and generosity of their supporters. Our school has chosen to support the valuable work of the NSPCC this term by taking part in a fundraising event. Children will be doing  Buddy’s Big Workout – which will not only be exciting for our pupils but will also mean they’re raising money for the NSPCC’s vital work and helping keep even more children safe. 

You and your children can be proud of the fact that every penny raised makes a significant difference for children. By supporting the NSPCC we can work together to end child abuse.

Talking about the Underwear Rule with your children

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
