At Wilden All Saints CE Primary School we recognise the challenges that families face in bringing up children. Everyone needs help at some time in their lives and therefore an ethos of early help is important for any school. There may be times when you need extra help and support. If this is the case please come and talk to us.

There are many ways in which we can help as outlined in our offer of early help. We can also help to plan specific support for families in the forms of Early Help Assessment where we can work together to set and achieve outcomes. Staff are aware of our schools offer of early help. Staff consider if there are any offers of early help that we can make in order to help a child thrive.

The coordinated Wilden All Saints CE Primary School offer of Early Help is outlined in the document below. We believe that early interventions for children or families, in many cases, will prevent children from experiencing harm.

Early Help Offer

Early Help means providing support as soon as a problem appears, to stop it from getting worse. This could be at any point in a child’s life, from birth to the teenage years. Worcestershire Children First is responsible for the delivery of services to children and young people across Worcestershire.

Their vision is for Worcestershire to be a wonderful place for all children and young people to grow up. For further information please visit www.worcestershire.gov.uk/worcestershirechildrenfirst/

 

The Wyre Forest and Hagley Project (WHP) is a service for parents and carers with a child attending a local primary school in Kidderminster, Bewdley, Stourport or Hagley.

WHP provide support early, helping to ensure that our pupils can make the most of their time in school. WHP are here to support your child and your family and can help with:

  • Improving school attendance
  • Avoiding exclusion
  • Emotional / behavioural issues
  • Relationship and family difficulties
  • Debt and money worries
  • Bereavement
  • Healthy relationships
  • And much more…

If your child has recently started having a difficult time at school then we may suggest that you speak with our WHP Link Worker. If you feel that you could benefit from some support then please contact the WHP Link Worker direct or speak to school reception. Our WHP Link Worker is often also around on Parents’ Evenings, at new intake events or on the playground at the beginning or the end of the school day.

WHP also run friendly courses for parents in the local area. These are relaxed and informal and held in small groups. It’s a great way to meet a handful of other parents for support and to share ideas. All courses are FREE. Please call 01562 851292 (8.30am to 3pm, 24hr answer machine) to find out more and book your place, or speak to our Link Worker here in school.

Introducing the new Starting Well Partnership in Worcestershire

Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, Action for Children, Barnardo’s and Redditch Borough Council were delighted to formally launch the new Starting Well Partnership from 1st April 2020. Please take time to look at the website www.startingwellworcs.nhs.uk as this service is a key part of the early intervention and prevention offer in Worcestershire.

The partnership will enhance the support available to children, young people and families across the county, providing help during antenatal, post birth, and early years stages, and right throughout school life. Due to the current Coronavirus epidemic, the service will not be fully operational at this time, but will include Family Hubs in each of our local districts, and will offer family and parenting groups supporting all aspects of physical and mental wellbeing for children, young people and their families.

They will also work closely with schools and other community groups supporting young people and parents. The new offer includes a new Starting Well website which they are pleased to say is now live. It will be developed more over the coming months, but initially includes lots if information to support families during the current challenges as a result of Covid-19. There are also links to wider information on a range of issues, from infant feeding through to supporting a young person’s mental wellbeing.

The flyer below gives parents details of how to make contact with the Starting Well Parenting Service. They are able to offer FREE online parenting courses and the opportunity for families to contact a Parent Support Worker. For more information and advice, please contact Amy Hodgkinson at Barnodo’s Wyre Forest Parenting and Community Team

Barnardo’s See, Hear, Respond

Coronavirus has turned life upside down, for all of us. But for thousands of children, already or newly vulnerable, a new reality is emerging which is starker than we could ever have imagined. As lockdown lifts and we look past the immediate crisis, we’re beginning to see more clearly how deep-rooted the impact of COVID-19 will be on children and young people, now and in the future.

See Hear Respond is a new Barnardos initiative developed to fill the widening gap for children and young people during COVID-19. From June to 31st October 2020 it will work with schools and other agencies to identify and support those children who are hidden from view; who are not receiving
support currently from statutory organisations and those who are at risk and/or experiencing adverse impact to their health and wellbeing.

KOOTH

Kooth is a free, web based, confidential support service funded by the Worcester and Hereford NHS Trust and is available to all young people aged 11-18 years. Kooth provides a safe and secure means of accessing mental health and wellbeing support designed specifically for young people.

Year 6 pupils transition into High Schools and as well as it being an exciting time, it may also cause anxiety and stress in others. Kooth can also support vulnerable young people who may experience isolation or low self-esteem and help build their resilience for the big changes ahead. During such unprecedented times, lots of young people are also seeking support around not seeing their friends/teachers before moving to high school, and not being able to see their wider family.

Kooth offers young people the opportunity to have a text-based conversation with a qualified counsellor. Counsellors are available from 12noon to 10pm on weekdays and 6pm to 10 pm at weekends, every day of the year on a drop-in basis. Young people can access regular booked online counselling sessions as needed. Outside counselling hours’ young people can message our team and get support by the next day.

When young people register with Kooth they will have support available to them now and in the future. Support can be gained not only through counselling but articles, forums and discussion boards. All content is age appropriate, clinically approved and fully moderated.

To find out more visit www.Kooth.com where young people can register for the service.

You can also view a short video about the service at: https://vimeo.com/318731977/a9f32c87de
