Safeguarding, Child Protection and Looked After Children
Garrick Green Infant School works in close partnership with parents, carers and other agencies to support all children in every way possible in order to safeguard and promote their welfare. As a result, if concerns are raised within the school, or a child or parent reports a situation involving possible abuse, we cannot guarantee confidentiality, but are required by law to follow procedures laid down by the Norfolk Local Safeguarding Children’s Board. The designated professionals for child protection in our school are Rebecca Dewing, Liz Banner, Helen Prophet and Rachael Aitken. Garrick Green Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Consequently, all adults working in school are required to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Enhanced Check. For obvious reasons of safety, dogs are not allowed in the school grounds. If you walk your dog to school please wait with your dog outside the school gate so they are not left unattended.
To prevent strangers cutting through our playground we lock the gates at 9.15am and re-open them at 3.00pm. If you need to visit the school during the day you can gain access through the side gate at the front of the school.
