Plymouth Early Help


If you have concerns regarding a child, there is a local organisation previously called Plymouth Early Help Team, (EHAST). This was rebranded as Connect2 but has since returned to, Early Help.

Early Help means taking action to support a child, young person or their family early in the life of a problem, as soon as it emerges. It can be required at any stage in a child’s life from pre-birth to adulthood, and applies to any problem or need that the family cannot deal with or meet on their own.

The Early Help Assessment Tool (EHAT) is an assessment for multi-agency support.  Further information can be found at Plymouth Online Directory.

You can book an appointment to talk about the support you are interested in.

Within the Prince Rock area, the  Team practice manager is John Drury & our own school support worker is, Cathy Bryan.

Operation Encompass


Prince Rock Primary are proud to be part of Operation Encompass, as are all of our LAT schools.


If police are called to an incident of domestic abuse and any children in the household have experienced the incident, the police will inform the key adult in school (usually the designated safeguarding lead) before the child or children arrive at school the following day.
