The term Early Help is used to describe the process of taking action early and as soon as possible to tackle problems emerging for children, young people and their families.
Effective help can occur at any point in a child or young person's life.
We encourage our families to come in and talk to us as soon as they are worried about any such problems. We have a 'Nurture Team' within our school who can help you to find the appropriate level of support. It may be something that can be done informally within school or it might be sign-posting you to outside agencies such as the Early Help Service at Bedford Borough (see details below).
Please see below links to useful sites surrounding various common areas of concern.
