Early Help

From time to time, we all go through situations which are difficult to cope with. We sometimes hear in the media about families who are, or who have been, struggling, or even in danger. 

We believe that every child and young person should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and that they are best supported to grow and achieve within their own families and their communities.

The Early Help Offer gives parents a framework for asking for support. An assessment form may be completed, or signposting given, to provide parents and families with services who can help. This may be behaviour support, parenting advice, bereavement counselling, health advice, or for specific medical issues. The list is not finite. 

At Corfield, we do not have a great deal of need for such services, although we do utilise any service we need to, in order to best support our pupils and their families. We will ask for individual tailored support that best meets the needs of individual situations. If in any doubt, please come and talk to us. We are here for you.
