Early Help means providing support to our children and families at Birk Hill Infant and Nursery School as soon as an issue emerges, at any point in a child’s life.
We understand just how complicated family life can be. From time to time, there may be situations where families need some extra help and support. If things are difficult at home, please come and talk to us. We can help in many ways.
