If you are worried and need someone to talk outside of school or family, the NSPCC have trained people available to talk to you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You can phone their help line or go online which ever you feel more comfortable with.
Contact them on 0800 111 or www.childline.org.uk
If you need to release any worries and do not feel confident speaking to a trusted grown up directly write your worry down and add it into the worry monster mouth. An adult will check these worries throughout the day and make time to speak to you about your worries.
Stranger Danger – Keeping children safe
It is important we all talk to our children about keeping safe when out and about in the community, whether it be walking to school, playing out with friends, going shopping or when on holiday.
We are asking that you remind your children of the following personal safety advice from West Midlands Police.
- Never go off on your own with a stranger, take things from them or get in a car with them.
- Make sure you tell your parents where you are.
- If someone scares you, or makes you feel uncomfortable go somewhere safe, which could be your home, your school or a police station.
- Remember to tell someone what has happened straight away.
- Always dial 999 in an emergency.
