Together, we can do it!

Early Help

Here at Catherine Junior School, we understand how complicated family life can be. Children and young people can experience a range of difficulties at any time in their life and we understand that from time to time there may be situations where you need extra help and support. Early help is for children and young people of any age and can come from all kinds of services and organisations who work together to support the family.

You can request targeted support if you have concerns about your child’s health, development or behaviour. The request can be made by yourself or with the support of a teacher, health professional or support worker. During the assessment, you will be fully involved and listened to which will help find the right support that you, your child and family may need. If things aren’t right at home, please come and talk to us - there are many ways in which we can help!

  • We will always take the time to listen to children’s concerns. Our behaviour mentor, Mr Taylor, is available to chat to pupils when they feel they have a problem they would like to share.
  • We will always take the time to listen to families. Sometimes, you might need to share information or have a difficult situation you need to make us aware of. We will listen and can suggest where to go for help or support if necessary.
  • We run parenting courses. These aren’t sessions to tell you how to do it, but an opportunity to share what works and sometimes what doesn’t!
  • Our school nurse is Mick Chown. You can speak directly with the school nurse team or we can refer you as a school.
  • There are a number of support agencies out there who we can access or signpost you to if you are experiencing difficulties at home.
