The Brigshaw Cluster Team work with our local schools and partners to provide a comprehensive package of targeted and universal support for local children, young people and families experiencing social, emotional and/ or behavioural difficulties.
Our aim is to identify those families, children and young people most in need of help and to ensure they are offered the right intervention at the right time, by the right people as early as possible in the life of a problem.
Brigshaw Cluster has established working partnerships with a range of services, including, Children's Social Work Services, health services, police, youth services, housing, intensive family support services and the voluntary sector. The Cluster Guidance and Support Team provide EarlyHelp and targeted support to children, young people and families across the seven schools in the Brigshaw Learning partnership and our two partner schools; Great Preston Primary and Lady Elizabeth Hastings Primary in Ledston.
The team, which is based at Brigshaw High School, offer support services, including:
Requests for support from our Cluster schools and partners are discussed and allocated services at our monthly Guidance and Support meetings.
Please speak to your child's school or your GP in the first instance if you have any support needs of your own that you would like to discuss.
