Changes to safeguarding at a Norfolk high school have been praised by a watchdog.

Ofsted inspectors visited Framingham Earl High School at the start of March amid concerns about the “effectiveness of safeguarding arrangements”.

They said the school’s policies had changed in December, with roles and responsibilities adjusted with the appointment of a new assistant head in September.

Inspectors noted that certain areas had “significantly improved”, including communication.

They said pupils had an awareness of leading a healthy lifestyle, but could know more about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

A report published after the visit said: “Vulnerable pupils who met with inspectors were able to provide examples of how they felt the school had helped them overcome personal barriers in their lives, and how their self-esteem had improved as a result of your support and intervention.”

The school is due to join the Sapientia Education Trust in spring.
