Mental Health Support and Early Help Offer

At Yattendon School we understand that from time to time family life can have complications.  These may be the times when you need some extra help and support.

To support and advise you at such times we have Mental Health Support and an Early Help Offer.

The Safeguarding and Mental Health Team can offer advice on a range of concerns or can signpost parents/carers to other sources of information, help and support.


What sort of concerns might parents share with our team?
