Early Help and the Locality Community Support Service (LCSS):

Whilst most children and their families are able to have a good quality of life with minimal additional support from public services, there are some who find life more difficult for a variety of reasons. At different times in their lives, children, young people and their families in these circumstances may need additional support and help from universal, targeted and specialist services. 

The Locality and Community Support Service (LCSS) is part of Children’s Services LCSS and are the first point of contact where non-immediate safeguarding concerns are identified.

Parents – when to contact LCSS

If you don’t already have a Social Worker or Early Help worker, and you have concerns, support needs or need advice for yourself or your child, please contact LCSS to discuss this.

Online Safety

Children and young people’s lives have changed dramatically because of the coronavirus. With social distancing measures and most schools closing, children will be spending more time at home and online.

And while the internet is a great way for children and young people to stay in touch with their friends and keep busy during lockdown, it can also bring risks. Now more than ever it’s important to talk to your child about staying safe online and about the apps and sites they’re using. We’ve got advice to help.

Special Educational Needs

A part of our policy is to make sure we meet the needs of each individual child and we take into account any special needs which a child may have.

The pre-school works to the requirements of the 1993 Education Act and The Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2000)

The pre-school’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Lily Rajnovic
