Early Help

The purpose of early help is to prevent issues and problems becoming serious and harmful to the child, young person, family and community. When children and families need this extra support, they often need it quickly. Provision of early help support can be at all stages of a child’s life; pre-birth, during pregnancy, childhood or adolescence.

We can provide support, advice and information to the families within our school community and to co-ordinate Early Help.  We can offer support with any worries that you may have in relation to your child’s education, behaviour and wellbeing, as well as being a listening ear.

Advice and support is confidential although concerns relating to the safeguarding of children will always be dealt with in accordance with the school’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
