Safeguarding and Wellbeing during the school closure due to Covid 19

Our Aim

For the duration of the nationwide school closure announced by the government, staff at Fulford School are working to maintain the link between home and school. We recognise the importance of working together to safeguard all children during this unprecedented time

This page is designed to ensure that all students and their parents have information and guidance to ensure that children are kept as safe as possible and have access to support whilst the school is closed.

Sharing concerns

Should you have a concern about the welfare of a young person, you can access support through the usual support routes at school. Our staff are working remotely and continue to offer the support necessary to our students.

Mr Paul Walker is the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Miss Ashleigh Stewart is our Safeguarding and Wellbeing Advisor. Both of these staff are available via email or through the usual school phone number:
