Early Help

All families at some time need help to cope with particular issues. If you need advice or guidance please speak to your child's teacher intially or make an appointment to see Mrs Welham.

When a family needs support we may suggest a CAF is completed. The CAF process enables us to involve other agencies to support your child.
