A Family Works Counsellor is available to work alongside staff to help pupils who have specific concerns and to enable them to develop the skills they need to overcome the problems they are facing. Family Works guidelines ensure that the counsellor will only see pupils who agree to speak to them and they will encourage each pupil to share with his parents/guardians the issues that arise during counselling.
