Early Help

Early help, also known as early intervention, is support given to a family when a problem first emerges. It can be provided at any stage in a child or young person's life. Early help services can be delivered to parents, children or whole families, but the main focus is to improve outcomes for children.

Your child’s journey through school is a partnership between you as parents/carers and the professionals at school. From time to time, this journey may presents challenges and in the first instance we encourage you to talk to your child’s class teacher so that we can work together to provide the appropriate support and help.

As a school, we offer a broad range of support. Every situation is different and may require a combination of support either form school or in partnership with external specialist support services to ensure that children and their families have access to support they need.

Any discussions with professionals include parents and the child as appropriate. Together we review the child’s progress, agree what everyone will do to make learning more effective and set appropriate targets.
