The ChildLine Schools Service has been into school to offer advice and support to our children.
The focus of their visit was to give children:
• An understanding of abuse in all its forms including bullying, and an ability to recognise the signs of abuse
• Knowledge of how to protect themselves from all forms of abuse
• An awareness of how to get help and sources of help, including ChildLine.
The ChildLine held an assembly for the children followed by workshops for each class where discussions were held and children were able to ask questions.
Pupils commented that they found it really helpful to know what they could do if they had a problem. They said that it helped them to know how to keep safe and reminded them of things that they had been told at school, especially about keeping safe when using the internet.
