Online Safety 

Children at The Arbours Primary Academy use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we teach 'e-safety' through the ICT curriculum to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:

Early Help Assessment (EHA)

An EHA helps to identify the needs of children and families and sets out a plan for those needs to be met.  The EHA is designed as a shared tool to be used by all agencies in Northamptonshire who are delivering early help; with a standardised approach children and families have the same experience to explore their needs, strengths and challenges.

The EHA is the first stage of Northamptonshire’s early help pathway and will be used to support children and young people aged 0-19.  It can also be used (with consent) up to the age of 24 where a young person has a learning difficulty or disability.

The EHA does NOT replace any social care assessment or EHC processes for children with disabilities or additional needs.

Mental Health 

Today, more than ever, it is important to focus on our mental health and wellbeing.  Many families are experiencing bereavements, health scares, job losses, increased working hours, lockdown implications and the general pressure to manage personal and professional lives; all of which can have considerable impact on our children.
