Speak Out Stay Safe

In the average primary school class, at least 2 children have suffered abuse or neglect.
Children need our help to Speak out and Stay safe.


Child abuse is preventable – not inevitable. 


That is why the NSPCC are here, fighting for every childhood.  Part of the work we do to keep children safe is to explain to them in an interactive, age-appropriate way:


  • what abuse is
  • how to spot the signs
  • and what to do if they are ever made to feel scared or worried by something.
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 and carers 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
