The NSPCC visited Orchard today because they are spreading the word to children about the Speak Out, Stay Safe programme that they have developed for primary aged children.

This is a great opportunity for schools as the topics covered are handled in a child friendly and age-appropriate manner by professionals who work for the benefit of children's safety and protection, the NSPCC.

They held an assembly to help children understand about different types of abuse so they can get help if or when they need it. This includes talking about neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and bullying. The purpose is to help children to identify a trusted adult they can speak to if they are worried about themselves or a friend. They also learn about Childline, and how the service can support them.

If you need help or are worried about someone then call Childline, they will listen to you.
