Visitors from the NSPCC visited years 5 and 6 today to discuss the work of Childline. During the initial assembly, the children were shown how to contact Childline, for free, at any time day and night for confidential advice and support. An explanation of the work of Childline was also shared identifying all the many ways in which children can be abused and neglected; linked closely with how Childline can offer help to victim's friends so that can in turn support others.
The assembly was then followed by a workshop where role play and group discussion was used to develop the ideas shared in the assembly. The pupils were able to question and address any misconceptions they may have had and consider how important the role of Childline is to individuals all over the country.
