GIRFEC – The Named Person


Getting right for every child is a national policy to help all children and young people grow, develop and reach their full potential.  It aims to improve outcomes for children and their families based on a shared understanding of their wellbeing.  Most children will receive all the support they need from their own families and community.

As part of the GIRFEC approach each child or young person is allocated a Named Person. In Anderson’s Primary Mrs Neil is the Named Person for children in P1-P3 and Ms Mooney is the Named Person for children in P4-P7. Ms Mooney will continue to have overall responsibility for all children, at Anderson’s Primary, throughout their primary school career. On transition to Secondary School, Guidance teachers become the Named Person.

If you would like any more information please contact the Named Person for your child.
