Adverse Childhood Experiences
ACEs have been widely recognised as an opportunity to target early interventions for children and families – allowing resources to be focussed on reducing adverse childhood experiences and mitigating their impact.
Schools can play an important role in this by;
• Highlighting those children whose experiences might suggest would benefit from early intervention.
• Being curious about why a child behaves in the way they do – be that the quietest or the loudest in the class, the bully or the bullied.
• Using Early Help and Children’s Services threshold guidance to ensure children at risk are identified and safeguarded.
