Early Help is important because it ensures vulnerable children and their families receive the help they need when they need it. At Powell’s Primary School we know that family life can be challenging. There are times when some families may need extra support. The school values safeguarding training at all levels. The designated safe guarding leads receive multi agency training and staff are trained and updated in safeguarding responsibilities including FGM and prevent. Staff are vigilant, listen to children and make referrals as required. The school has good links with Families First Plus Team who provide support and advice around early help and early help assessments.
The following table identifies the levels of need and the services that the school can offer or signpost to. The information is taken directly from the GSCB website. The list is not exhaustive with the school actively seeking additional/alternative support when needed. Please click to open
