One of the changes that can take place when your parents break up is starting a new school. Leaving your old friends behind and starting somewhere new can feel scary – anyone who has to make a new start somewhere often feels sad, confused and angry and this is completely normal.

It might help to have a good look round at your new school before you start and get to know the building. This will help you feel more at home when you start and give you more confidence.

Here are some tips to help you:

If you really are struggling to settle, talk to your mum or dad, a teacher or the close relative. It can really help to get it off your chest.

Stay in touch with your old friends too and invite them up to visit. It can help to have good times with people you know when you’re finding your feet in a new place.
