What is Early Help? What is Early Help? Please click the link above for more information! We want all children at Sir Alexander Fleming Primary School and Nursery to enjoy a happy, safe and healthy childhood and be able to reach their full potential. Sometimes a child or family might need extra support, and we want to find the best way forward for everyone as quickly as possible. EARLY HELP means taking action to support a child, young person or their family as soon as a problem emerges. It can be required at any stage in a child’s life, from pre-birth to adulthood, and applies to any problem or need that the family can’t deal with alone. Our Early Help offer at SAF is extensive and it is to enable everyone to work together to put your family at the heart of decisions made about your child.
