Speak Out Stay Safe Programme

With the amazing support of Ant and Dec, the NSPCC has launched an online version of their safeguarding programme– ‘Speak out. Stay safe’. 

‘Speak out. Stay safe.’ online is an effective way to support your school's safeguarding duties, links directly to the curriculum and is offered at no cost to all UK and Channel Island Primary schools.

The programme includes access to age-appropriate video assemblies for KS1 and 2 as well as fun and engaging supporting resources to help reinforce the messages in the classroom.

Schools are supported to deliver the online programme by their local School’s co-ordinator.

The programme supports schools in teaching children to:

  • Recognise abuse in all its forms, including bullying and online abuse
  • Know how to keep themselves safe by Speaking Out
  • Understand that abuse is never OK and is never a child’s fault
  • Identify ‘trusted adults’ they can speak to if they are worried about anything

Here is information about the virtual version of the programme.

The NSPCC began working with Wiltshire Schools in 2013. Since then, they have reached over 95% of Wiltshire Primary schools with their Speak Out. Stay Safe messages.

This input can support the ongoing work in Wiltshire schools to address child protection and bullying as part of Healthy Schools and PSHE Education. The programme is in line with the PSHE Association Scheme of work and the current Ofsted criteria.
