Gomeldon Primary School

Early Help


At Gomeldon Primary School we have a strong culture of safeguarding: children know they are valued and will be listened to. We appreciate the importance of early help in our safeguarding duty, and we aim to recognise families and children who may benefit from early intervention and put this in place in a timely manner.
We ensure that our children get the support that they need, at the time that they need it. This keeps them safe and, ultimately, enables them to thrive and learn so they can achieve their full potential.


Through our nurturing, family-feel ethos, we endeavour to ensure each and every pupil and member of staff is valued and feels safe. We aim to  develop the emotional wellbeing of our children and their learning about being both physically and mentally healthy in line with the DfE guidance: Promoting Children and Young People's Mental Health and Wellbeing 2021 . We aim to identify early signs that help is required and support families with this in school as well as signposting outside agencies.

We do this in a number of ways, not limited to:

  • Safeguarding, welfare and concern procedures
  • PSHE curriculum as well as the wider curriculum
  • Assemblies and circle times
  • Gomeldon R Values
  • Buddies systems
  • Pupil voice opportunities
  • Teacher and TA observations
  • Check-ins in class
  • Open door policy
  • ELSA
  • Pupil progress meetings
  • Parent consultation meetings
  • SEN meetings
  • Sign posting external agencies who can help
