THE NSPCC is calling for more volunteers as the new school term begins, after record numbers of youngsters were taught how to keep themselves safe.
Over 5,700 schoolchildren across Warwickshire took part in the charity’s pioneering Speak Out Stay Safe programme during the last school year.
The programme, delivered by volunteers, teaches children aged five to 11 how to recognise sexual, emotional and physical abuse, and who they can talk to.
Speak Out Stay Safe consists of an assembly presentation for children aged five to 11 followed by a one hour classroom workshop.
