Early Help at Madeley Academy

At Madeley Academy, we are keen to support you, your child, and your family via our dedicated, professional approach of initial support through Tutors and Year Managers. This is underpinned by our Early Help intervention offer where required.

This offer includes local signposting to relevant external provisions that may be able to help and guide you through the difficulties and challenges often faced by families with school aged children.

Our offer will begin with an Early Help Assessment (EHA) to identify your specific needs. This can include issues affecting education, relationships, housing, finances, behaviour etc. The purpose of an EHA is to help us work together, identifying the right support for you from an early point. We can work together on concerns which have the potential to become more significant or complex if they are not addressed.

Early Help is a voluntary process which may also extend to a multi-agency approach through school. As part of our offer, we may suggest and manage referrals to:

  • School Nurse
  • Parenting support courses
  • Young person’s behavioural concerns
  • Young Carer support
  • Adult Carer support
  • Family drop-in Hub information for T&W
  • English Additional Language support available for parents and their children
  • Domestic abuse or violence local support offer
