Moorfield Primary School Early Help offer
Early Help & Strengthening Families
Moorfield Primary school is part of the Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Partnership. We help our families by signposting them to services that may help them. You may wish to look at their website as it gives lots of valuable information for families that may need assistance and support.
You can find information about topics including parenting support, what to do if you think a child is being abused or neglected, details of activities and clubs, advice about choosing childcare and a service directory with links to many services in the Telford and Wrekin area.
The Early Help and Strengthening Families contact for Moorfield is Hadley Castle (Helen Clover) available on 01952 387183
We are fortunate to have a Family Support worker in school as we work closely with the Newport Cluster which is led by Burton Borough school. We share the services of a family support worker who assists some of our families in need of practical or emotional support, particularly when difficulties arise around the parenting and wellbeing of children. Referrals to the Family Support Worker are made by the school through talking with school staff and listening to parental concerns. For more information, please contact Sue Hedges by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The flyer below provides information on red flags and outlines procedures in relation to raising concerns. It has been endorsed by the local safeguarding boards, who are keen to raise awareness of vulnerable children and preventable deaths of children with long term conditions.
ASD & Autism Hub
Whether your child has just received a diagnosis, or you are looking for information to help your child flourish, the Telford Children’s Autism Hub are here to offer you guidance and support.
It's important to remember that your child is the same person they have always been, and that knowing that they are autistic can enable you to fully understand their unique needs, allowing you to provide them with correct support and empower them to become the best versions of themselves.
The Team is also able to signpost you to other additional sources of help and support that may be beneficial to your child and your family.
For more information and how to contact the Telford Autism hub visit their website on:
Bee U is the emotional health and wellbeing service for people, up to the age of 25, living in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
Previously known as CAMHS the service offers a range of support depending on the needs of the child or young person. The services you may be offered are described briefly here or you can find out more about what help is available at: https://livewell.telford.gov.uk/Services/2095
Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses that involve disordered eating behaviour. This might mean limiting the amount of food eaten, eating very large quantities of food at once, getting rid of food eaten through unhealthy means (e.g. purging, laxative misuse, fasting, or excessive exercise), or a combination of these behaviours.
It’s important to remember that eating disorders are not all about food itself, but about feelings. The way the person interacts with food may make them feel more able to cope or may make them feel in control.

PEGS – Parental Education Growth Support
Supporting parents and professionals with child to parent abuse
Child to Parent Abuse is complex and misunderstood – partly because it has historically been largely ignored in favour of a focus on intimate partner abuse, partly because it is drastically under-reported, and partly because there are lots of misconceptions around the subject.
Some parents may not recognise what is happening to them as abuse – but the behaviours they are experiencing are abuse, and they are not okay.
