Early Help

At Ryelands Primary and Nursery School, we understand that some families will need a bit of extra help sometimes- there is no shame in this. Some of the common reasons why families might need additional support are:

  • Issues with housing
  • Financial difficulties
  • Mental health difficulties
  • A child who is disabled, has certain helath conditions or has additional needs
  • Difficulties with managing children’s behaviour
  • Trouble with routines and boundaries at home
  • Children with additional needs

If you feel that you need help with anything at all, it is always best to get help early on to avoid things escalating. A member of staff from the pupil support team can meet with you and complete an Early Help Assessment. This is a tool that all agencies in Lancashire use, from midwives, health visitors, schools and many more. This is a way of understanding everything that is going on for a family, and it allows everyone involved to make a plan for how to help. This is all completely voluntary and it is led by the family- it is NOT something that is done to them. More information can be found here.

If you feel you might benefit from more support, you can contact school on 01524 64626 or email [email protected]
