Safeguarding and Child Protection at JG

As a school we  take  the  safety and  child  protection of  our  pupils  very seriously.

We work within Nottinghamshire  County Council  safeguarding  processes, and  the  Nottinghamshire  Multi Agency Safeguarding  Hub [ Notts MASH] . We  have  a  Whole  School Child  Protection Policy which is  updated and  reflects DfE "Keeping  Children  Safe in Education"  [KCSiE] guidance.

KCSIE emphasises that everyone who comes into contact with children and their families has a role to play in safeguarding children. School and college staff are particularly important, as they are in a position to identify concerns early and provide help for children, to prevent concerns from escalating.

The  KCSiE  guidance  is updated at least annually  by government, and  so our JG CP policy may see regular updates to reflect this.

The  copy  below will be  the  most  current  one.

We  have  three lead practitioners on staff who have  specialist training in Safeguarding and Child Protection.

These Designated Safeguarding  Leads [DSLs] are:

Chris Belton - Headteacher [Senior DSL]

Lucy Viggars  - Deputy Headteacher [Deputy DSL]

Hardip Thompson - Assistant Headteacher/SENco [Deputy DSL]

All staff receive regular training and  updates on Child Protection.

If  you  ever  have  any concerns  about  any child , or  indeed adult; just  ask a  member  of school or  play services staff for  help, and  they will ensure you  get  advice/support.
