The NSPCC’s hugely successful Schools Service is protecting children in primary schools across the UK right now. However, more needs to be done to reach every single child in order to protect an entire generation. Therefore, whilst a key part of the schools service focusses on delivering in schools, NSPCC are also running Big Assemblies across London and the South East. These events bring together clusters of local schools in one venue, where the schools team will deliver messages about keeping safe from abuse, and where to go for help, on a much larger scale. In January this year the NSPCC held their first Big Assembly at the Lee Valley Velodrome in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The event was an unqualified success and saw 660 children take part in one morning.
On 7th July 2015 NSCPCC are holding a Big Assembly at the University of Kent with a morning and afternoon session which will hope to see up to 600 children in one day. As with the in-school service, the NSPCC will provide this event free of charge.
The itinerary for the day will be:
– 10.00am First Session Arrives
– 10.15am Assembly
– 10.45 Break
– 11.00 Workshops
– 12.00 First Session Leaves
– 13.00 Second Session Arrives
– 13.15 Assembly
– 13.45 Break
– 14.00 Workshops
– 15.00 Second Session Leaves
