Safeguarding In School
Safeguarding the wellbeing of our children is paramount.
Our policy, and other safeguarding documents can be found below.
We have very clear procedures and systems in place to identify and act if we suspect a child is in danger.
We have a number of safeguarding trained professionals in the Academy, but our 3 named designated safeguarding leads are:
- Mrs Lisa Ames (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead) firstname.lastname@example.org
- Mrs Laura Morgan (Child Protection Support Officer) email@example.com
- Mrs Sarah Willcocks (Child Protection Support Officer) firstname.lastname@example.org
- Claire Preston (Deputy Headteacher) email@example.com
Safeguarding Staff Update
Wymondham High are taking part in a jointly run operation between Norfolk County Council and Norfolk Police called Operation Encompass. Encompass has been set up to help schools provide support to children who have been present at incidents of domestic violence. We know that children can be significantly physically or emotionally harmed when they are involved in, or witness to, domestic violence.

The Harmful Sexual Behaviour Toolkit
The Harmful Sexual Behaviour Toolkit developed by the Lucy Faithfull Foundation in 2020 with funding from the Home Office is designed for parents, carers, family members and professionals, to help everyone play their part in keeping children safe. It has links to useful information, resources, and support as well as practical tips to prevent harmful sexual behaviour and provide safe environments for families.
