On Wednesday 6th June 2018, the NSPCC and Buddy their speech bubble came to Loxford primary to talk about safety. The students listened to a range of information about safe adults, what to do if they are feeling sad or worried about something and the importance of being able to speak out about their feelings.
All students in reception through to year 6, had a tailored assembly which spoke to them about safety and what to do in the event of them being worried. Year 5 and 6 looked at a worry bag and decided that it would be hard for someone to carry a lot of worries around with them. This sparked a discussion about the importance of sharing your worries with an adult who you trust.
Year 5 and 6 then had workshops which looked at different scenarios and had the students think about when secrets were good or when they were not. One student gave the example of a birthday party and then discussed that was a good surprise as it would have an end date.
Overall, all of the students really enjoyed the talk and workshops where they have learnt to speak out about their thoughts and feelings.
