Partner Agencies

Our school relies on the support of a number of outside agencies to ensure that we carry out our responsibilities of care to all students. These include:

Education Welfare Officer (EWO)

Our Inclusion/Attendance officer (Christine Kirkham) works with our EWO (Linda Fitzpatrick) to monitor attendance problems. They also work with pupils and their parents to help with problems affecting attendance.

School Nurse

Carole Haslam is the nurse linked to Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School. She is involved with the provision of vaccinations, medicals, eye tests, counselling and addressing any other personal health problems.

Educational Psychologist

Our consultant educational psychologist is based at Chatsworth Street Family Advisory Centre, her name is Ms Jenny Dutton. She is available for referrals in a range of areas and is a key figure in the statementing process of our students with additional needs.

Safer School Police Officer

The school maintains positive links with Merseyside Police via Eaton Road Police Station. Officers make themselves available to come in and provide advice, speak in assemblies and do home visits where appropriate.  Our current SSPO is PC Phil McKeown. He is based on the school site for 2.5 days per week.


The internet is now part of our everyday lives. Children, young people and adults alike use it to learn, work, play and socialise via their computers, tablets, phones and games consoles.

The internet can be an interesting and fun place to spend time, it can also be a dangerous place if you are not sensible, responsible and don't know how to stay safe online.

Here are some sources of information and advice for students and parents:
