Early Help

At Hopelands School, whenever possible, we will ensure that early intervention is actioned via a referral to The Early Help Partnership as soon as the criteria are met, to prevent situations to escalate into larger problems.

The Multi Agency Child Neglect Toolkit for Gloucestershire (April 2017) http://www.gscb.org.uk/media/15291/gloucestershire-child-neglect-toolkit-270417-final-vs.pdf supports schools and other agencies about the suitable action to take when a child has been identified as making inadequate progress or having an unmet need.

Therefore the school will consider the following:

  • Undertake an assessment of the need for early help;
  • Provide early help services e.g. pastoral worker, SENCO
  • Refer to appropriate services e.g. CAHMS

The Early Help Partnership can be contacted at stroudearlyhelp@gloucestershire.gov.uk or on 01452 328130
