Pupil Voice Week 2020

Tootoot invites you to join Pupil Voice Week and celebrate why “it’s good to talk”


PVW 2020 3After a record-breaking 2019, with over 300,000 pupils joining, tootoot’s Pupil Voice Week is back and bigger than ever.

Running from the 21st – 25th September, this year’s Pupil Voice Week has more partners and free resources than ever before to help schools celebrate.

This year’s theme is ‘it’s good to talk’. We’ll be promoting the wellbeing of people of all ages in education. We believe that through opening up and talking more about our own mental health, we can create a healthier school community.

We want every child to know that it’s good to talk about emotions, mental health and wellbeing. The week is all about empowering young people to speak-up and use their voice. With the help of our partners we have specially designed resources that explore topics such as emotional wellbeing, mental health, how they can use their voices for good and anti-bullying.

Your Free Resource Pack
Receive your free support and resources by signing up at pupilvoiceweek.co.uk/register/school, and join the celebration on social media from the 21st – 25thSeptember using #PupilVoiceWeek and tag @tootootofficial.

National CSE Awareness Day - 18th March 2020

Join the Fight Against Child Sexual Exploitation


Stop CSE Day Logo 2019National Charity NWG Network asks all to unite against child sexual exploitation for their National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Raising Day – 18th March 2020.

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) is a form of sexual abuse that involves the manipulation and/or coercion of young people under the age of 18 into sexual activity.

The National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Raising Day aims to highlight the issues surrounding child sexual exploitation; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children.

Stop CSE Day image 2019Previous National Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Raising Days have seen hundreds of events take place across the UK, ranging from poster and leaflet displays to whole authorities embarking on targeted campaigns across public services and shopping centres.

Working with over 230 organisations across the UK to help prevent and raise awareness of child sexual exploitation, NWG Network continue to disseminate information on the issue of child sexual exploitation.


‘The National Child Exploitation Awareness Day is a great way to highlight the issues surrounding Child Exploitation; encouraging everyone to think, spot and speak out against abuse and adopt a zero tolerance to adults developing inappropriate relationships with children or children exploiting and abusing their peers.'

How to get involved

The NWG advise, 'you can focus your awareness raising event to the day itself – 18th March – or spread it out with a series of events over the week or month. Just remember to let us know your plans and we will publicise them on our websites Awareness Day interactive map and through our social media platforms Holding events such as school talks to pupils, teaching staff and non-teaching staff, non-uniform days, stalls, displays, posters and leaflets through your place of work are an important and effective way of raising awareness and sharing important messages around child exploitation.'

The NWG are also asking people to write a personal pledge on your hands to show support for the Helping Hands campaign. Post your photo on social media with the hashtag #HelpingHands and #CEADay20 to help to raise awareness of CSE and wider exploitation.
