Toftwood Infant School

School children in Toftwood have been learning how to stay safe and happy and to speak out if they have any worries.

Hayley Kidd, NSPCC schools organiser for Norfolk, visited Toftwood Infant and Junior Schools to talk about things that may harm them or make them feel worried and encouraged the children to think about situations in their lives that are not OK.

Both schools are committed to ensuring all children feel safe and know what to do if they have any concerns.

With the help of Buddy the mascot, Hayley gave examples such as when adults were using loud arguing voices that may be upsetting, or when a child is feeling unsafe because they are left on their own, or hungry because they do not have enough food to eat. She talked to the children about which adults they could talk to in school and at home.

Information about the NSPCC was given to staff and all the children received a “Speak out. Stay safe” sticker to take home.
