Early help refers to the offer of any information, advice or support to children, young people and their families as soon as possible in their lives, or when issues emerge, to help prevent problems from escalating.

At The Cobbs Infant and Nursery School this is some of the early help we offer you:

  • Parent/carer ‘open door’ – come and speak to the school office staff, if you need pointing in the right direction for support with your child’s learning, behaviour or anything else that you may be worried about. 
  • Talk Time - if your child has any worries encourage them to talk to their teacher or to put them in the class worry monster so that they can get the support they need.
  • Early Help Assessment (EHA) - an EHA involves listening to you to find out what help you need and talking about what is working well in your life. Based on what you say and what help you would like, a plan is formulated so that professionals can work together to make sure you get the right sort of help. Mrs Taylor/Mrs Hanberry meet with parents/carers to carry out EHA.
  • Hold family support meetings – some parents/carers don’t feel comfortable having a Family Outreach Worker so we offer to hold the family support meetings in school. Mrs Taylor/Mrs Hanberry will attend the meetings, inviting the relevant agencies so that we can all work together to give you and your family the support you need.
  • Refer to outside agencies such as: Family Outreach Team, parenting courses, our School Health Advisor and local children’s centres.
  • Support to complete forms and other paperwork such as: Disability Living Allowance.
