The Local Authority also produces a flowchart to help schools determine the appropriate actions should they become aware of safeguarding issues.  The flowchart can be accessed via the link: LADO Flowchart.

 

Another key area of safeguarding is the Prevent Duty strategy, aimed at preventing extremism and radicalisation.  The headteacher has been trained in the statutory duty and is in the process of training all staff within the school.

Early Help

Ambergate Primary School works to provide Early Help to families in the school community.  Early Help services aim to both provide advice and/or intervene where there is evidence of emerging needs with the objective of preventing escalation to higher level services. We work alongside a variety of agencies and are providing support through the school setting.

 

What is Early Help? Information for Parents

 

Request for Early Help can be made by speaking to a member of staff, through the school office or by following the links below.
