Welcome back to school everybody.....

Early Help for Parents

Effective early help relies upon us all working together, providing local support as soon as a problem arises at any point in a child’s life, from early years through to the teenage years and into early adulthood.  Don't wait until it feel you are at crisis point as there is plenty of help out there if you are struggling. Feel free to give us a call or pop in and see us if you need some help, support or advice about your child. We have a wealth of experience and can offer a safe place to talk.

Contact the school office if you think you would like to meet and we can arrange an appointment.

 Suffolk Parent Hub logo

A single place for Suffolk parents or carers to find parenting advice and support to help their child's development.

The Common Assessment Framework is a way of working with families that puts your needs at the heart of decisions made about you and your children.


In a perfect world, every child in Suffolk would be nurtured by a loving family, achieve great things at school and live in a supportive community and enjoy being a child. But the sad reality is that not every child has these opportunities.

 Today Iceni supports families in Ipswich and Suffolk to give all our children the opportunity to have a safe, healthy and happy start in life. We strongly believe that tackling the causes of addiction, poverty and other inequalities lies in effective targeted early intervention and addressing the unmet and inter-generational problems that are entrenched in deprived neighbourhoods in Suffolk. Our work is designed to help those who will raise the next generation of children, rather than applying sticking plasters to today’s problems.

 We do this by providing comprehensive support to parents and their families in targeted high-needs areas, including an emphasis on intervening early before problems become a crisis. All aspects of a family’s  development is addressed through a host of services to parents, including addiction assistance, domestic abuse and improving parent child relationships.

 We hope you share our ambitions and together, we can give our children and families opportunities that are truly limitless.
