    Speak Out Stay Safe


    This year we have delivered the NSPCC Speak Out Stay Safe programme.



    Speak out Stay safe is a safeguarding programme for children aged 5- to 11-years-old. It is available to all primary schools in the UK and Channel Islands. It helps children understand:

    • abuse in all its forms and how to recognise the signs of abuse
    • that abuse is never a child’s fault and they have the right to be safe
    • where to get help and the sources of help available to them, including our Childline service.
    • Please follow this link if you would like more information on the programme. NSPCC Speak out Stay safe linkSpeak out Stay safe completion certificate.

    School Systems


    Within school we use the online safeguarding system CPOMS to log and monitor any safeguarding concerns or incidents. Many schools use the CPOMS system and information recorded there can transfer with pupils when they move to another school.
