FAQ’s from Parents – Problems at School

One of the most frequently asked questions from parents is: What if I think my child is having problems at school?

At some point of their school life, children will be likely to experience social issues. Often a young person will try to cope with these alone.  Sometimes this works, but often these issues get out of hand and the young person needs help to deal with them, in a sensitive but firmly manner. At Succsess4All, we know that problems such as bullying can cause hindrances in a child’s learning. Problems are spotted best by those closest to the child as well as those that are in frequent contact. As a duty of care to the children that attend our learning hubs and clubs, we will always report any suspicions of problems that could be affecting your child back to you, the parents.

As a parent, you will know the behaviour patterns of your child the best and so if you are having worries about your child’s emotional and/or physical wellbeing, here are some of the actions you can take:

  • Try talking to your child about it in a loving manner,
  • Make an appointment to speak to your child’s (form) teacher to see if they have noticed similar changes in your child’s behaviour,
  • Speak to the Coordinator of the Learning Hub your child attends, or call/pop into the office to make an appointment with Busola (0191/273 2229).
