Early Help

What is Early Help?sl(4).jpg
Early Help refers to the offer of any support, advice or information we can give  to children and their families as soon as possible to help prevent problems from escalating or when issues begin to emerge.

There are many different ways in which we can support children and families at GSP:  

  • Miss Leah our Pastoral leader is on the playground every morning and is available to talk to parents/carers when you drop your children at school to discuss any concerns you may have regarding behaviour, learning or any other support you require. She is also available during morning sessions and parents can speak to her directly, telephone or make an appointment.
  • Miss Leah can support parents/carers to complete forms and other paperwork such as high school admissions, as well signpost or direct you to relevant agencies who may also be able to support.
  • Meetings with Miss Leah are available to meet with parents/carers to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your child’s behaviour or learning. You can also speak to your child's teacher, Mrs Wilding, our Deputy Head teacher, Mrs Moore, our SENCO or Mrs Briggs, our Headteacher.
  • Referrals to outside agencies such as: the Children's Centre, the Family Outreach Team, parenting courses, our School Health Advisor, St Joseph’s Family Centre, Play/Art Therapy and local children’s centres can also be made.
  • We can also complete Early Help Assessment (EHA) with families to access further support. These involve listening carefully to you, discussing what help you need and talking about what is working well in your life. Based on the conversations and information gathered, alongside what help you would like, a plan is put together so that professionals can work together to make sure you get the right sort of help at the right time.
  • Our Safeguarding Team meet every two weeks to identify any children and families who would benefit from early help. This allows them to access services in the school and beyond to support identified vulnerable pupils and families.
