Derbyshire Safe Place Scheme

Safe Places are public buildings in towns and communities across Derbyshire, such as libraries, shops, pharmacies and GP surgeries. They have stickers in their windows so you can see that they are part of the scheme and know you can go in and ask for help if you need to.

Early Help Offer

.NWPANA Early Help Offer October 2023

Providing early help to our children and families at North Wingfield Primary and Nursery Academy means we are more effective in offering support as soon as we can. 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 teenage years.

Here at North Wingfield Primary and Nursery Academy, we absolutely understand and empathise with just how complicated family life can be. From time to time, there may be situations where you need extra help and support.

If things aren’t right at home, please come and talk to us. We have an Offer of Early Help.

There are many ways in which we can help.

At North Wingfield Primary and Nursery Academy, we pride ourselves in knowing our children really well: we are alert to the welfare of our children and are vigilant regarding any situation in which we can provide support.

We work collaboratively with our families to identify any additional needs and we seek at all times to support with openness, integrity and understanding. We place the needs of the child at the centre of all we do.

1.   What is Early Help?

The purpose of early help is to prevent issues and problems becoming serious and harmful to a child or young person, their family and community. When children and families need this extra support, they often need it quickly. Provision of early help support can be at all stages of a child’s life: pre-birth, during pregnancy, childhood or adolescence.

2.   What does Early Help include?

Support for pupils which includes:
a.    Promoting good attendance and punctuality. b.    Promoting self-esteem and confidence.
c.    Promoting positive behaviour and positive attitudes to learning.
d.    Providing individualised support.Support for families which includes:
e.   Providing information and signposting to other services in the local area.
f.   Liaising with a range of external services such as housing and Family Support Workers.
g.  Assistance in completing paperwork and forms e.g. housing, foodbank vouchers, attendance and support at school
​    and other agency meetings.
h.  Advice and support in promoting positive behaviour at home.

3.   Who provides Early Help support in school?

The answer is any member of staff; usually, the class teacher in the first instance as they have most contact with the children. All staff receive safeguarding training to ensure that advice given is in the best interests of keeping children safe.

The school telephone number is 01246 851176.
