Early Help offer
At Howitt Primary Community School we understand that from time to time family life can have its complications and sometimes families may need some extra help. To support and advise you at such times we have an Early Help Offer.
We believe that by working together we can better support children and families. Sometimes families need support from a wide range of agencies or people, for example, health services, housing services, family support workers, social workers and local police.
As a school we may be able to signpost a range of services to support families beyond the educational setting.
Year 5 and 6 children enjoyed taking part in anti-bullying workshops.
Children in school enjoyed a talk from the NSPCC about keeping safe. There were also workshops for our Year 5 and 6 children.
