'For every future, for every child'

What do I do if my child is having difficulty making friends?


Don’t worry!  Children can take time to settle into school: there is a great deal for them to learn and to take on board.  Children are encouraged to mix as they move through the many and varied school activities and will naturally find a friend with whom they can feel comfortable.  Friendship groups tend to be fluid as they move through the school, and your child will soon have an instinct for who she/he will feel happy to play with.  However, if you feel that there is a significant problem in your child forming friendships, then we would encourage you to get in touch with your child’s class teacher.
