Families First is the term used in Hertfordshire for services that work together to support families who need extra help. These are also known as early help services.

We all experience difficulties at some point. Families First can help you find early help and information to prevent issues from getting worse.

If you need more help than your usual support network – for example your health visitor, school, doctor or family centre – Families First can work with you and your family to create a package of support.

Looked After and Previously Looked After Children

Mrs Hand is the ‘Designated Teacher’ for those children either currently being or having previously been looked after by the local authority. For information and resources to support your child’s education please visit the Hertfordshire Virtual School website.
