Early Help

When a child/young person/family needs something extra, Early Help is the initial response offered by all services in contact with children, young people and families. This builds an understanding to address extra needs and prevent situations from getting more difficult for children and young people.  The aim of Early Help is to build on people’s capacity and resources to manage their own dilemmas, resolve their own difficulties and prevent further problems in the future. Early Help is not a designated team it is the way that EVERYONE works together to support the needs of families.

Prevent relates to the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 which came into force on 01 July 2015. Since July 2015 there has been a duty on schools to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism". This is called the Prevent duty.

 Prevent is part of the Government's counter terrorism strategy. Its aim is to stop more people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism in all its forms. All our staff have been Prevent trained. Our designated Prevent Officer is Head Teacher, Mr  Wilder.
