As part of the Getting It Right For Every Child approach each child or young person is allocated a Named Person. Although, most children will receive all the support they need from their own families and community, we have a legal obligation to make available an identified Named Person for every child and young person in our care. In Secondary, a member of the Guidance team is usually the Named Person. During the holiday period the Named Person Service will be covered by the Local Authority centrally. The Duty Named Persons can be contacted through the general enquiries line on 01343 563374 or via the generic e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always if the Named Person is not available and there is a concern for a child, a call must be made to the Children and Families Access Team on 01343 554370 (08457 565 656 out of office hours) and/or the Police on 101.
