Early Help


Early help, also known as early intervention, is support given to a family when a problem

first emerges. It can be provided at any stage in a child or young person's life.


At St John's we work to provide Early Help for those children and families with emerging needs.

We work alongside a range of agencies to provide support through the school setting. The main objective of Early Help is to prevent escalation to higher level services. 


We understand just how complicated family life can be. From time to time, there may

be situations or circumstances where you need some extra help and support.


     Early Help…


  • is for children of all ages and not just the very young,
  • can be provided at any point of need and;
  • can be 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.
  • is important because there is clear evidence that it results in better outcomes for children.


A request for Early Help:


Please call school and ask to speak with Mrs Cooper (Medical & Welfare Assistant) or
