The school’s four DSLs meet at least weekly to discuss vulnerable children in school. All conversations and actions are recorded on CPOMS. As a team, the DSLs discuss the best course of action for each child or family be that additional help in school, liaising with parents, signposting to other supporting agencies or referring to other supporting agencies. 

At Lancaster Lane School we understand that from time to time family life can have its complications.  These may be the times when families need some extra help and support. To support and advise families at such times we have an Early Help Offer.

The Safeguarding Team within school can offer advice on a range of concerns or can signpost parents to other sources of information, help and support.

What sort of concerns might parents share with us?

This can be any concerns parents may have which may be having a negative impact on their children.  This can include:

Behaviour management

Financial worries and debts

Domestic abuse

Housing concerns

Bereavement and loss

Helping with divorce and separation

Online safety issues

Sleep issues and routines at home.
