Meet the Safeguarding Team

The safeguarding team consists of the following members of staff:

My name is Pauline Jones and I am the Designated Safeguarding Lead for Gladesmore Community School.  I have many years of experience helping young people and parents with safeguarding concerns. I have been teaching for over 35 years and have, over those years, helped many children with their problems. Children should not suffer in silence, The Safeguarding team is here to help. 

I know from personal experience how difficult parenting can be.  We are all human and everyone needs help from time-to-time.   I always say to children that reaching out is a sign of strength.  Often our young people and their families say that they wish they had asked for help earlier because they feel much better once we begin to work towards a resolution.  Please get in touch with us earlier rather than later: we are always here to help.

— Pauline Jones, Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)


— Tina Fagbohungbe, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL)

My name is Tina Fagbohunge.  I first joined the Gladesmore Community School family when I worked for the London Metropolitan Police.  I then changed careers to work entirely with the Safeguarding Team because I recognised how vital this work is. It is so important that we do our utmost to protect children from harm in its many different forms such as peer-on-peer abuse, sexual harassment, fear and violence.

I love working with children and would urge you to get in touch with us if you need advice, help or support.  Please don’t hesitate, just ask. Our door is always open, so share your problems with us. If we don't have the answers ourselves, we will help you to find the information or support you need.  


Many parents will recognise me as the Head of Year 7 and Deputy Head of the school, however, you may not be aware that this is only part of my role.  Although my work with children begins in Year 7, I continue to track and support the pupils throughout their 5 years at Gladesmore Community School. 

My role encompasses safeguarding, behaviour and student motivation.  Over my many years at Gladesmore, I have learned that pupils thrive when there is constructive and regular communication between the school and home.  Please contact us if you have any worries or concerns.

— Engin Djemali, Deputy Head, Safeguarding


— Goldwater Ojokor, Associate Headteacher, Safeguarding

Many parents will recognise me from parental events or work with siblings.  I have worked at Gladesmore Community School for more than 20 years and safeguarding has always been a key part of my role.  Today, I am the Associate Headteacher and  I work with students in all year groups helping to ensure that they have pastoral support and maximise their achievement and progress. 

Pupils often worry that their concerns are too minor or too vague to mention. They worry that their problem can’t be solved. Please ignore these thoughts and get in touch.  From experience, we know that earlier intervention reduces the risk of serious harm and leads to better outcomes.  


My name is Tachaan Marshall.  I have always wanted to work with young people and I so initially worked at the school as a Success Ambassador.  I subsequently qualified as a Social Worker and then supported young people with their challenges through this role with a special focus on Looked After Children. I decided that I wanted to return to Gladesmore so that I could have a positive impact on a greater number of children. So, please do let us know so we can help with your problem. 

I am eager to help children manage their challenges and consider health and wellbeing as being so important. 

— Tachaan Marshall, Safeguarding Officer
