Barnby Road Academy

‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Safeguarding in The Curriculum



At Barnby Road Academy we follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme which perfectly connects the pieces of Personal, Social, Health and Well-Being Education. The programme teaches children emotional literacy, social- and lifelong skills, RSE/RSHE and resilience in an age-appropriate manner. Jigsaw gives our children the tools to have the best possible life. The programme equips them for happier and healthier lives. Jigsaw is taught throughout the whole school on a weekly basis. 





Every year, across the entire school, we teach the NSPCC PANTs lesson to our children. This is designed to teach our pupils how to stay safe from sexual abuse, without giving explicit information or telling scary stories or even using the term “sexual abuse.” Lessons are delivered in a way that’s fully age-appropriate. Children will learn about the ‘PANTS’ acrostic, which stands for: 


  • Privates are private
  • Always remember your body belongs to you
  • No means no
  • Talk about secrets that upset you
  • Speak up, someone can help


NSPCC - Speak Out and Stay Safe



Every year at Barnby Road we deliver the NSPCC 'Speak Out and Stay Safe' programme, which helps children understand:


  • abuse in all its forms and how to recognise signs of abuse
  • that abuse is never a child’s fault and that they have the right to be safe
  • where to get help and the sources of help available to them, including Childline service.

The assemblies we use, which feature Ant and Dec, support children to feel empowered - knowing how they can speak out and stay safe. With the help of the NSPCC mascot, Buddy the speech bubble, children will know they have the right to:


  • speak out and be heard
  • be safe
  • get help when they need it.
