Providing early help to our children and families at Ackworth Howard 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.

Here at Ackworth Howard, 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 support.

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.
