Children’s welfare is paramount at John O’Gaunt School.  All children, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation, or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse. We work in partnership with children, young people, their parents, and carers along with other agencies to ensure all students are safeguarded.

The key safeguarding responsibilities within each of the roles above are set out in the Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023 Guidance listed below.

You can contact the Safeguarding Team either via the main switchboard – 01488 682400 or by email.
