Our Early Help Offer

EARLY HELP

 

Early Help means providing support to our children and families at Killamarsh Infant and Nursery School as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life.

 

We understand just how complicated family life can be. From time to time, there may be situations where you need some extra help and support. If things are not right at home, please come and talk to us. We can help in many ways.

 

OUR AIMS:

To work to families' strengths...

……especially those of parents / carers and to take time to

understand their needs fully.

To focus on preventing problems... ...before they occur and try to offer flexible, responsive support when and where it's required.
To base all we do on evidence... ...of both what is needed and of what works and be brave enough to stop things that are wrong.

 

SUCCESSFUL EARLY HELP WILL MEAN:

Children:
  • are physically and emotionally healthy
  • are resilient and able to learn well
  • are supported by their families, community and (when necessary) professionals in order to thrive
  • live in safe environments
Parents and carers:
  • support one another in the community
  • know where to get help if needed
  • have trusted relationships with school, community, other parents 
  • are well informed about how best to help their child develop

 

Early help is everyone’s responsibility, together we will make sure that children and their families are safe, happy and ready for school, work and life’s challenges. The school has a clear and detailed Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy in place which puts the safety and protection of children at the heart of any decisions.
