26 Sep Children at local nursery taught how to stay safe from sexual abuse

Children at a nursery in Great Chesterford have been taught about how to stay safe from sexual abuse with the help of the NSPCC’s cartoon dinosaur, Pantosauraus.
The pupils at The Chesterfords Preschool were visited by the NSPCC and learnt all about consent and speaking out if they’re upset or worried through the charity’s PANTS project.
The age-appropriate project encourages parents and carers to talk PANTS with their children from an early age and the child protection charity has produced a song and video featuring a Pantosauraus to help.
Youngsters at Chesterfords were shown the video and taught the song before designing their own pants pictures spelling out key messages that they had taken from the session.
Pantosauraus taught the Great Chesterford children that Privates are private, Always remember your body belongs to you, No means no, Talk about secrets that upset you and Speak up, someone can help.
