Our work with schools

See how you can use our Schools Service and child protection guidance and training to help keep children safe from abuse.

We work in partnership with schools, so that we can reach more children and help keep them safe.

Our pioneering Speak out Stay safe programme empowers children, helping them understand abuse and giving them confidence to speak out and stay safe.

And we help schools protect more children – by providing teachers and other staff with safeguarding advice, support and training. Together, we can help make every school the safest environment for every child.

Speak out. Stay safe.

Our programme (formerly Childline Schools Service) uses specially trained staff and volunteers to talk to primary school children about abuse.
Speak Out. Stay Safe.
