Partnership working


As well as our fantastic relationships with our pupils, parents and carers and governors, we also work within a wider extended team.

Multi-agency working is key to effective safeguarding and child protection. Here at William Stockton we have long term well established links that enable us to work together as a multi disciplinary team to promote and enhance the safety and wellbeing of children and families.

It is useful to familiarise yourself with the multi disciplinary team that we work alongside. 

This extended team includes…..

  • Cheshire West and Chester childrens social care team
  • Early help and prevention team
  • Cheshire police 
  • Forhousing
  • NHS services
  • Domestic Abuse services (DAIPS)
  • Substance misuse/Abuse recovery services
  • Young Peoples services
  • Safeguarding Children In Education (SCIE)


This list is not exhaustive.  For information regarding such services and to find out about what each service can offer, you can visit the following website.
