Whilst most families are supposed to have a kind and caring relationship, it is not uncommon for families to have times where they do not get along (even in families that very rarely argue).

Some of the things related to your family which you may be worrying about are:

  • Parents arguing with each other
  • Arguments with your parents/stepparents or carers
  • Arguments with your brothers and/or sisters
  • Parents separating or getting divorced
  • Abuse – Sexual, emotional or physical
  • Problems with drugs or alcohol
  • Domestic violence
  • Neglect
  • Money worries
  • Children being taken into care
  • Cultural differences

If you are concerned about any of the above the best thing you can do is talk to someone.  Who could you talk to?

  • An adult you trust
  • A friend
  • Your form tutor
  • A Pastoral Manager (Mrs Underwood/Mrs Heath/Mr Mayes/Mr Coombes)
  • Your Head of Year (Mr Marsden/Miss Heggs/Mr Clark/Mrs Wright/Mrs Smith)
