NSPCC Speak out. Stay safe. Online

Date: Friday, 04th Dec 2020 | Category: General

Due to the effects of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic the NSPCC have changed the way the Speak out. Stay safe. programme is delivered.  Staff and volunteers won’t be delivering the programme in schools at the moment, or for the foreseeable future.  The NSPCC are delighted however, with the amazing support of Ant and Dec to have launched an online version of the safeguarding programme – ‘Speak out. Stay safe. Online.

Available for children aged 5 to 11, the online programme includes access to video assemblies and supporting resources for use in the classroom.  (Welsh versions are available and a BSL version is also available for d/Deaf children.  The specially adapted SEND version of Speak out. Stay safe. remains available as usual.

This document  gives an overview of the programme , and you can watch a short film about why the NSPCC is delivering its schools programme online, which can be shared with headteachers or put on your website.

How does Speak out. Stay safe. online work?

Primary schools across the country will have access to pre-recorded Speak out. Stay safe. online assemblies, to show to your pupils.  The Speak out. Stay safe. messages are delivered in a fun and interactive way with the help of NSPCC mascot Buddy and special guest appearances from Ant and Dec.  The online assemblies include pause points to allow for teacher-pupil interaction.

The NSPCC  have also developed supporting resources to go alongside the online assembly.  These consist of a Pre-Online Assembly Presentation Pack (Key Stage 2 only) to use before and a Lesson Plan to use after the online assembly.  They provide fun and engaging classroom based activities that prepare children prior to watching the online assembly and help reinforce learning after the assembly.

Speak out. Stay safe. online has assemblies and supporting resources for pupils in:

  • Key Stage 1
  • Key Stage 2
