Pupils get a lesson in how to stay safe

Junior pupils at Sibford School received a lesson in how to stay safe when they were visited by Imogen McCabe of the NSPCC.

Imogen … who was accompanied by the society’s mascot, ‘Buddy’ … led two assemblies and conducted two interactive workshops as part of the society’s ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ campaign, which gives children the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect.

Edward Rossiter, head of Sibford Junior School, said: “It was a very worthwhile and empowering morning for both pupils and teachers. Imogen discussed with the children issues such as bullying and sexual abuse, without using scary words or adult language. She also outlined some of the valuable work the NSPCC does 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’.”
