Primary School Children in The West Country and Gloucestershire will be visited by ChildLine volunteers to help youngsters spot the signs of abuse.
Research from the NSPCC shows that the majority of children who contact ChildLine for advice and informationa are over 11 year old. However the NSPCC say that the majority of children subject to a child protection plan are under the age of 11.

ChildLine say the aim is to visit every Primary School by 2016.
The Service is provided free of chage and all resources are providied by the NSPCC.
