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