Sadly many children who suffer abuse often don't recognise what is happening to them is wrong. Our pioneering Schools Service aims to reach out and empower these younger children by working in every primary school in the UK every two years.

We deliver safeguarding messages to ensure pupils know what abuse is in all its forms, how to keep themselves safe and also ensure they can identify someone to speak to if they are worried about anything.

Our Speak Out. Stay safe programme aims to deliver safeguarding messages that:

  • Ensure children have an understanding of abuse in all its forms, including bullying, and an ability to recognise the signs of abuse.
  • Ensure children know how to protect themselves from all forms of abuse.
  • Make them aware of how to get help and sources of help (including ChildLine).


NSPCC Schools Service ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ programme is a ground-breaking initiative that currently delivers safeguarding assemblies and workshops to children in Primary school (currently Years 5 and 6, soon toi also include KS1 and Years 3 and 4).

By focusing on our main objectives, we aim to visit every primary school in the UK at least every two years to start a societal change that will bring about a long term reduction in child abuse. So far we have reached over 1 million children in over 15,000 schools across the UK.
