Early Help Support
Early Help is a way of getting extra help and support when your family needs it, but getting it as soon as difficulites start, rather than waiting until things get worse. It's for children and young people of any age and their family.
Help can come from all kinds of services and organisations who work together to support your family. You might be using some of these services already, but we want to make sure they are providing the right support for you and your family needs.

We use a safeguarding system called CPOMS.
Most schools operate a manual (in many cases hand written and paper based) system for the reporting of incidents, including potential Child Protection issues. CPOMS has enabled us to improve our management of child protection and similar incidents and actions, whilst reducing paperwork and administration.
St Alban's Catholic Primary School participates in Operation Encompass which is a partnership between South Yorkshire Police and Education, supported by Doncaster Safeguarding Children's Board.
