NSPCC are visiting schools across Leeds to encourage children to, “Speak out and stay safe.”

Rob Burrow a Leeds Rhino player attended a workshop at Seven Hills Primary School in Morley, Leeds this week. The sessions are designed for Key Stage 2 pupils to learn about different signs of abuse and understand what to do if they are affected and who they can turn to for help. Rob Burrow spoke to the children about how important it was to speak out about, “abuse, neglect, bullying and anxiety.”

Rob Burrow commented “As a father I’ve really enjoyed seeing the work that the NSPCC are doing in schools across Leeds encouraging children to Speak out and Stay safe.”

Michelle Poucher, NSPCC schools service area coordinator, added: “We’re delighted to have welcomed Rob Burrow along to our workshops. We know that the best way for children to stay safe is to know who to speak to when they have a problem or a concern. It is so important that we make sure children know where to turn when they are at their most vulnerable, and our volunteers do incredible work reaching schools across Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield.”
