Keeping children safe while schools are closed

A parent’s guide to keeping children safe when they are not in school

Even when schools are closed, our children’s safety and wellbeing remains our top priority. If you are concerned in any way that a child or young person is at risk of harm please do act upon it.

There will, however, always be a member of the senior leadership team available.  They are all trained DSL’s (Designated Safeguarding Leads).  Your main options are:

  • Telephone Nelson Infant School on 01603 620344 and ask to speak to a DSL
  • Email office@nelson.norfolk.sch.uk with your message marked URGENT Confidential FOA DSL.  Please request a call back from a DSL

Alternatively you can seek support from Children’s Services at Norfolk County Council by contacting CADS (Children’s Advice and Duty Service)  on 0344 800 8020.  CADS is a team of experienced social workers, police and health professionals ensuring the safety of children and vulnerable adults in the community.  If you consider the incident to be an emergency then call 999. 

Lastly you can access information and resources from Norfolk County Council’s Safeguarding Children Partnership via the following link:
