At Bitterley School, we recognise the importance of supporting our children and their families. Often a little support put in place quickly is most effective. To do this we need to work together. This process is called Early Help.
If you or your child needs some support, you can access early help provision by contacting the school and speaking to the Headteacher, SENCo or Designated Safeguarding Lead.
We are able to access the wide range of agencies and support networks provided by Shropshire Council as outlined on their website – click here for further information https://shropshire.gov.uk/early-help/#
You can contact some agencies yourself if you wish and sometimes they will ask the school for a referral or more information. Examples of the help available can be found here – click on the title to access the website.
