NSPCC Speak out Stay safe Online

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 a virtual 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.

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.

We have also developed supporting resources to go alongside the online assembly. These consist of a Pre-Online Assembly Presentation Pack for Key Stage 2 to use before and a Lesson Plan 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.

Speak out. Stay safe. online has assemblies and supporting resources for pupils in:

  • Key Stage 1
  • Key Stage 2
