Early Help

Our Family Support service provides an Early help offer (Level 2) to all children and families with emerging needs.



Family Support staff will provide additional help for children, young people and families as soon as challenges start to emerge or where it is likely that issues will impact negatively on children’s outcomes.


Family support


  • Is for children of all ages within our school;
  • Provides additional support for families, parents and carers;
  • Is very effective in supporting a child, young person and/or their family to step down from statutory services as well as preventing the escalation of issues.


Who are our Family Support workers?


  • Bethany Wilkinson
  • Amy Rickards


Both Family Support workers can be contacted via our school.

Our Family Support Workers run coffee mornings throughout the year for parents / carers, often with guest speakers. For example, last year we ran sessions on:


  • Sleep workshop;
  • Derbyshire Autism coffee morning;
  • First Steps eating disorder coffee morning;
  • Online Safety with PC Dufton;
  • Nursery to Reception transition;
  • Year 6 to Secondary transition.

Social, Emotional & Mental Health support for children
