What is Early Help?
Early help means taking action to support a child, young person or their family early in the life of a problem, as soon as it 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 cannot deal with or meet on their own.

Protecting Children from Radicalisation
CAP UK (Child Assault Prevention Project) is a community project in Devon that brings parents/carers, school staff and children together to understand how to effectively reduce children’s vulnerability to child abuse and build safer communities for children.
The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Devon and Cornwall Police
Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.
Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
County lines is when criminals from major cities such as Liverpool, Manchester, London and Birmingham expand their drug networks to other areas of the country. This activity brings violence, exploitation and abuse to rural communities. ... County line networks are having a massive impact on rural counties.

Information for Online Safety
Despite several previous requests, the parking outside the school os still causing a major concern. There have been several incidents now where children have narrowly missed being knocked down by a car. This cannot continue.
Some parents still park illegally on the double yellow lines, even though it is clearly signposted that there is to be 'no loading or unloading at anytime'. These signs are there to ensure everyone's safety.
As a school we are lucky to have our own visitor's car park. Please use this instead of parking on the roadside.
