Early Help Offer
At Vale of Evesham School, we have a commitment to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children and young people and believe that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
Early help means providing support as soon as a problem appears, to stop it from getting worse. This could be at any point in child’s life. Early help is not about passing the issue on to an expert, it’s about thinking about the best support that can be offered to achieve the best outcome for the child and the family.
At the Vale of Evesham school, we recognise the challenges that families face and that there may be times where extra help and support are needed. We encourage families to talk to us where this is the case.
Early Help may be appropriate if:
- A parent or carer is worried about their child’s development,
- Staff at Vale of Evesham School identify a worry or concern,
- A family is vulnerable, for example, as a result of relationship difficulties, substance misuse, health issues or debt,
- There are concerns about a child’s attendance at school.
