LSCB stands for 'Local Safeguarding Children Board' and it is made up of adults who meet and plan ways to help children and young people stay safe.
The Super Safety Squad is the junior part of the LSCB and they are a group of children who work together to think about how to keep children safe. Adults don't always know what's really important to children so the Super Safety Squad find out and then tell them.
Each year the 'FAB Awards You!' event is hosted by children from the Junior LSCB to celebrate and share anti-bullying work from schools and community settings across South Tyneside.
2017 was the year of the 8th awards and was marked by the involvement of 21 schools/community groups and the addition of two new award categories; the Inclusion Award and the Role Model Award.
Anti-bullying resources for schools and youth groups
In the spring term of 2018, the Super Safety Squad ran a consultation for Primary School children in South Tyneside. The issue which came out top was bullying and became their campaign theme. During their meetings and at events organised for schools the group has identified key issues around bullying. They have produced a set of anti-bullying resources which are now available to view and use.
