NSPCC Visits

The NSPCC visits Windmill Hill Academy every three years and delivers their Speak out. Stay safe. assembly to share information with your child about how they can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries.

It was a very worthwhile and empowering session for both pupils and teachers. They speak to the children and staff about the valuable work they do across the country, and talk about how important it is for everyone in our school community to join them in their ‘fight for every childhood’.

 

Talking PANTS with your children

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 ‘Talk PANTS’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse.

The guide uses the rules of PANTS to teach children that their body belongs to them and them alone.
