Speak Out. Stay Safe is a safeguarding programme available to all primary schools in the UK and Channel Islands. The programme includes child friendly, interactive assemblies and workshops delivered by specially trained staff and
volunteers who help children:
- understand abuse in all its forms and recognise the signs of abuse
- understand that abuse is never a child’s fault, and they have the right to be safe
- know how to get help, and the sources of help available to them, including our Childline service.
Due to the effects of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, we’ve changed the way our
Speak out. Stay safe. programme is delivered and therefore our staff and volunteers won’t be delivering the programme in schools at the moment.
We are delighted however, that with the amazing support of Ant and Dec we have launched an online version of our safeguarding programme for the autumn term –
Speak out. Stay safe. online. This offer, available for children aged 5 to 11, includes access to video assemblies and supporting resources for use in the classroom.
The Speak out. Stay safe. online programme is an effective way to support your school's safeguarding duties and links directly to the curriculum. It will also help reinforce key messages about abuse and neglect as part of a school’s
teaching on relationships. It will support children to feel empowered - knowing how they can speak out and stay safe.
A BSL version is also available for Deaf children, and our specially adapted SEND version of
Speak out. Stay safe. remains available as usual.
How does Speak out. Stay safe. online work?
You 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 our mascot Buddy and special guest appearances from Ant and Dec. The online assemblies include pause points to allow for teacher-pupil interaction.
Speak out. Stay safe. online has assemblies for pupils in:
We have also developed supporting resources to go alongside the online assemblies. These consist of a Pre-Online Assembly Presentation Pack Key Stage 2 only to use
before and a Lesson Plan (Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2) 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.
