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.

Assistant Head, Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)


Tachaan Marshall
Deputy-Designated Safeguarding Lead (DDSL)

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. 

My name is Ernest Regisford. Many parents will recognise me as one of the Assisstant Head of the school, however, this is only part of my role. 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.

Armani Moaka
Safeguarding Officer

My name is Armani Moaka.  I enjoy working with children and having previously worked as a qualified Social Worker, I have considerable experience in supporting young people and their families with many problems and challenges they encounter. I bring this experience and understanding to Gladesmore to help you. My role has a focus on Early Help, I can provide support and guidance at an early stage and be really helpful to students. Please don't be embarrassed or shy, we are here to help and listen to whatever your issue might be. Please let us know, so we can support you too. 

I am here to help, so please seek me out if you have an issue or question. Your problem is important to us, so do share your concerns with us.  

I started my career in education by working in a behaviour unit in a mainstream secondary school. I progressed to working in a special school which was based on a level 4 acute psychiatric CAMHS ward 
A lot of cases began while the children were in mainstream school, so I wanted to go back to a mainstream setting where I felt that I could make a greater impact.

As a Head of Year, I was able to combine my experience of behaviour management and mental health to best meet the needs of my year group.

Safeguarding is important to me because I take on the practice of treating my students how I would like someone to treat my own children. I think it is important for all students to have an advocate for them which is where my role comes into play.
