Children at The Firs School have raised nearly £2,500 for charity.
The NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) recently visited the Newton school to run assemblies for Years 1-6 about keeping safe and the difference between good and bad secrets.
Year 5 and 6 also took part in interactive workshops with the NSPCC as part of their Speak out. Stay Safe programme aimed at primary school children.
All pupils in the assemblies took home a sponsored spelling form to raise as much money as possible for such a great cause.
A grand total of £2,464.60 was raised and children were delighted to receive badges as their reward.
Headteacher Lucy Davies said: “We welcomed the opportunity to have the NSPCC speak at the school as we think it is very important our children understand about personal safety. We were also delighted that the children supported this great cause by raising so much money with their sponsored spell.”
