On Tuesday 23rd May 2017, Anna, from the NSPCC (National Society of Provision of Cruelty to Children) visited Heronswood Primary School to lead an assembly for Key Stage 2 children in Year 3 to Year 6.

The children met the NSPCC mascot 'Buddy' who encourages children to 'Speak out, stay safe.'

Children had the opportunity to discuss worries they may have and bricks were placed in a sack to symbolise these. They learnt that when children worry it weighs down on them and can get in the way of everything else. To alleviate these worries, children should tell a trusted adult such as a parent, grandparent or teacher.

Sharing the worries was represented by taking the bricks back out of the sack and making it lighter. A very powerful image for the children to see and feel!

Children learnt about the four different types of abuse and the importance of speaking out if they experienced any of these.

A jingle was sang by all to remember the ChildLine phone number 0800 11 11 should the children need to speak to anyone at anytime of the day.
