North Walsham High School Safeguarding

 

At North Walsham High School safeguarding the wellbeing of our students is of paramount importance. If we suspect a child is in danger, we have clear systems and proceedures in place to support them and their families. 

Below is our fully qualified designated safeguarding team:
