The Great Project

If ever you are worried about anything that is happening at home you should always tell an adult you trust.

This might be a teacher at school, a midday supervisor, a teaching assistant or even a family member.

It is important to remember though that they might not be able to keep what you tell them a secret, they may have to tell another adult to make sure that you are safe.

We have listed some telephone numbers and websites that you can also visit to get help and information.
