Every primary school in Cornwall is going to help step up the fight against child abuse.

Pirate FM has learnt that at least two children in every classroom suffer.

The NSPCC 'Now I Know' campaign will introduce Childline into primary schools across the Duchy, with visits to the children every two years.

Nine to eleven year olds will learn how to keep themselves safe and where they can go to find help.

The NSPCC are aiming to reduce child abuse cases by preventing them before they start.

Cornwall's Childline representative Annika Palmer said:  "We have reached 1, 215 children so far across the region, and we are aiming to be in every primary school, so by 2016 and beyond we hope to be in all 252 schools across Cornwall."

Peter Wanless, NSPCC Chief Executive said: "People in this country do not want to tolerate child abuse. We no longer need to convince them of the suffering it leads to, or the costs to future lives - Jimmy Savile's crimes are one shocking illustration of the consequences when people do not speak up and are not heard, for whatever reason. But we must now inspire everyone to believe that such horrors can be prevented and that they can help."
