Early Help Offer

‘Early Help’ means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life, from the foundation years through to the teenage years. It involves the offer of advice and support to children and their families as soon as possible in their lives, or when issues emerge, to help prevent problems from escalating. An Early Help Assessment can be completed by any professional, from any service, who is working with a child, young person or family.

An Early Help Assessment can benefit a child, young person or family:

  • It can help to identify needs at an early/emerging stage.
  • It is strengths and evidence based.
  • It is personalised.
  • It is a multi-agency approach.

At Tyldesley Primary School we want the best for every child in our care. Children are at the heart of all we do and we are committed to providing a safe, caring environment where the welfare of our children comes first. We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.

Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment.

  • Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL): Janet Shorrock
  • Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs J Buck
  • Safeguarding Governor: Sarah Lord

Please contact Mrs Shorrock immediately for all safeguarding concerns.
