NSPCC VISIT TO ST MARY'S

On Tuesday 30th January, the NSPCC were invited into school to deliver their Speak Out., Stay Safe programme. This programme aims to give a generation of children the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect. 

Pupils are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or Childline. 

Karen McManus from the NSPCC said, 

'The staff and children were welcoming and engaged. The children appeared interested and enthusiastic in both the assemblies and the workshops. During breaks the teachers were interested in what the NSPCC Schools Service offers and were re-assured that the content was appropriate for both age groups. 

Thank you very much for making us feel so welcomed and for being involved in the day. '

We were delighted that one of governors, Sr. Chris, could join us for the assemblies.
