Early Help

What you need to know

Sunny Brow Nursery School is part of Rochdale ‘Early Help’ scheme.  The aim is to help children and families, as soon as possible, at their point of need.  The first point of contact is a member of the school staff – who will visit you at home – where they will complete a short questionnaire with you.

The questionnaire will give us an insight into the first three years of your child’s life – before starting at Sunny Brow.  The information is confidential and is used to help staff identify any support you and your child may need.

The school’s office staff have access to Rochdale’s Family Service Directory.  This lists all the services – statutory and voluntary – that are available in the Borough.  Stafff can ‘sign post’ you to the most appropriate agency.

We hope that early identification, and intervention, will prevent any needs escalating into a crisis.  The whole process is in place to support you and your child – and we are already seeing improved home/school relationships because of it.
