Early Help Offer

Child Protection is everyone's business, even when out in the community. If you believe that any child is in danger ring Children’s Social Care on 0300 123 6720 or 0300 123 6722 choosing the option for urgent child protection or contact the police.

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.

At these times, we need help and advice but finding the right department or agency can be a mindfield. 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 Hippings Methodist Primary School, we do not have these services on site, but are able to refer to different agencies in order to best support our pupils and their families. We are always happy to help where we can and to try and help you find the right agency to support you. 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.
