If she is not available then the DSL Alternates are : Mr James Bilner and Mrs Leanna Plowright
The Online Safety Lead is: Miss Rachael Smith
The Prevent Lead is: Mrs Gemma Taylor
The person responsible for Looked after children is: Mrs Gemma Taylor
The Named Safeguarding Governor is: Mrs Andrea Whybray
The Chair of Governors is Mrs Angela Laithwaite
Local Authority Designated Officers can be contacted via email on LADO@suffolk.gov.uk or using the LADO central telephone number 0300 123 2044 for advice and consultation.
We take our responsibility for the care and safety of the children in Nacton very seriously and will report any concerns to the appropriate authority. There are strict protocols to be observed and staff and Governors regularly update their training. Every adult who comes in to school on a regular basis is asked to read and sign our Volunteer Policy and will be required to have had a DBS check.
The Headteacher or other senior members of staff are ALWAYS available to talk to concerned parents
Any information on the website can be provided to parents/carers in paper format, for free, if requested.
