Safeguarding

The school's work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding

Ofsted

All educational establishments are required to adhere to the statutory guidance as outlined in Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015) and Keeping Children Safe in Education, DfE (2015) and to follow Norfolk Safeguarding Children Board procedures in order to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. In doing so, schools are expected to consult the Norfolk County Council Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) if they believe there is a possibility that a child may be suffering from abuse or neglect.

A referral to MASH is not intended to be an accusation of any particular action or against any particular person. It is the reporting of concerns which have come to the school’s attention. This is in accordance with Norfolk Safeguarding Children Board child protection procedures and the John of Gaunt Infant and Nursery School safeguarding policy.

Both documents are publicly available and can be consulted by parents/carers.

The Alternate Designated Safeguarding Leads (ADSL) are:

Hannah Simpson and  Becky Buller

The designated safeguarding governor is: Sharon Goff
