Help For Families

Early Help

Here at Cramlington Village Primary School, we aim to provide Early Help Services, which may be delivered to parents, children or whole families, with the main focus being to improve outcomes for children. 

Early help can offer children the support needed to reach their full potential. It can improve the quality of a child’s home and family life, enable them to perform better at school and support their mental health (EIF – 2018)

Through targeted interventions we aim to:

  1. Work with families by taking time to fully appreciate their needs and how to provide or signpost to appropriate support.
  2. Aim to work with families in preventing problems before they occurs or when a problem first arises and offer flexible, responsive supportive when and where required.
  3. We will always involve the family in all Early Help strategies, and most will only be put in place with their permission. The school will aim to work with families in a supportive, non-judgemental way so that trust is built up and the best possible outcomes achieved. 

We know our work in early help is successful if it delivers these outcomes.
