Springside supports the Early Help strategy for Rochdale, promoting integrated care for families. The Early Help team consists of Melody Fierro (Headteacher) as the lead, closely supported by the Deputy Headteacher, Assistant Headteacher, bilingual Pastoral Officer, the Th.Inc worker, Medical lead and a member of the admin team. As a team, on tri-weekly basis they will deliver training to whole school staff to raise the awareness of the Early Help Assessment process, the children’s needs and responses framework and effective early help strategies which both teachers and teaching assistants can use.
Each half term members from the Early Help Team will attend safeguarding network meetings, thus supporting consistency and sustainability.
