Early Help at BCA

The purpose of early help  is to prevent any issues from getting worse by offering families support at the right time.

Any professional working with your family, such as those based in schools, health services, and in voluntary sector organisations, can offer early help services as soon as they can see that advice, support and/or intervention may be needed.

Early help works best when it’s offered to the whole family and when services are delivered jointly by professionals.

Early help assessments

Early Help Assessments (EHA) are how professionals identify and assess your family’s needs.

We complete the assessment with your family and a range of different organisations, such as schools and health services. This is so the support given meets the needs of the whole family.

An EHA means everyone can make sure the support is working and making a difference to your family. It also helps to improve local services for everyone.

Prevent

Prevent Duty

On 1 July 2015 the Prevent Duty (Section 26) of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act, 2015, came in to force. This duty places the responsibility on Local Authorities and Schools to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. Beamont Collegiate Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is of paramount importance. All staff are expected to uphold and promote the fundamental principles of British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore diversity and understand Britain as a multi- cultural society; everyone should be treated with respect whatever their race, gender, sexuality, religious belief, special need or disability. As part of our commitment to safeguarding and child protection we fully support the government’s Prevent Strategy. The named Lead at Beamont collegiate academy is Mr M Reynolds. He can be contacted on 01925579500
