Early Intervention Workers

Early Intervention Workers (EIWs) are part of Cambridgeshire’s locality teams and work in partnership with schools and other professionals, helping children and young people to get the best out of school. EIWs do this by working with parents to build upon the best of what schools are already doing to enhance the home-school relationship.


The role of an EIW is to encourage parents and children to get the very best from school by providing help and support with any concerns to do with parenting issues. This might include helping parents with any worries in relation to their child's education, behaviour or attendance, or providing support and strategies on how best to deal with these issues. They are also available if parents would simply like some confidence-building, more support in a particular area or just a listening ear (or two!).


If as a parent you feel you would like some 'one to one' support, please ring Samantha Stacey, the EIW assigned to Barton, direct at the EIW office (01954 284604). Alternatively you can let someone at the school know and they will contact Samantha on your behalf.


Early Intervention Workers can:


  • work with parents and carers to help them become more involved with the school
  • support parents and carers to take up learning opportunities themselves
  • offer support to parents when children first show signs of social emotional, health or behavioural difficulties
  • let parents and carers know of other agencies and support in the community
  • offer one-to-one support and parenting programmes to parents needing additional support signpost to specialist services
