Events in School
All the adults who work within Whale Hill Primary School provide a safe and secure environment for children to learn and make good progress, while teaching them to recognise risks in different situations and how to protect themselves and stay safe. We invite a range of services to come into school to deliver assemblies and workshops so that the children know who they are able to talk to (inside and outside of school) if ever they have any worries or concerns.
The NSPCC visited Key Stage Two to share information about their campaign ‘Speak Out. Stay Safe.’
Their specially trained staff and volunteers held an interactive assembly for Key Stage Two followed by a workshop for the Year 5 and 6 children. With the help of their mascot, Buddy, they covered topics about bullying and abuse to deliver the message of speaking to someone in order to make them feel safe. During the assembly and workshop, pupils learned about the different types of abuse, in a child-friendly and age appropriate way, so they can get help if or when they need it. Trained NSPCC staff helped the children understand and identify a trusted adult they can talk to if they’re ever worried about themselves or a friend. They also learned about Childline, and how it offers support to children.
