At Waseley Hills High School we recognise the challenges that families face in bringing up children. There may be times when you need extra help and support. If this is the case please come and talk to us. There are many ways in which we can help as outlined in this offer of early help.
What is Early Help?
Early Help means providing support as soon as a problem appears, to stop it from getting worse. This could be at any point in a child's life, from birth to the teenage years. Anyone can provide early help – you don't need to be an expert professional. Early help is not about passing the issue on to an expert, but thinking about what is the best support you can offer.
Everyone needs help at some time in their lives and therefore an ethos of early help is important for any school. We believe that early interventions for children or families, in many cases, will prevent children from experiencing harm and reaching a point of crisis.
