NSPCC Support Mr Butler (Deputy Head) writes: As you know the NSPCC visited St Francis School recently and delivered their ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ programme.  They also delivered an online safety workshop for parents and provided valuable resources for keeping children safe online.  The NSPCC can only provide free resources like these to help keep our children safe with the support of fundraising which is why we are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC with a fun fundraising event.  Donation forms have already been sent home with the children. Please could you return these with whatever donation you feel appropriate before half term.  Every penny makes a difference to helping children stay happy and safe, for example just £4 could pay for a Childline counsellor to answer a call from a child who is in need of help.  If you do not have a donation form then please hand in any money directly to your child’s Form Teacher. Thank you so much for your support.
