Early help

Early help

Help should be given as soon as possible to children who need it – this is known as ‘Early Help’.

A setting may suggest completing a ……if they think you would benefit from extra support to help with your child’s behaviour or emotional wellbeing. If your child’s difficulties are solely with their behaviour in school, this may not be the appropriate next step; see also SEN Support. Speak to the setting first, so you have the opportunity to explore all options for support

As part of the assessment process, you will be asked what’s working well, what isn’t and what might need to change. Your child’s views, wishes and feelings should be at the centre of the process.
