FamilyReading and listening to recent comments about troubled families has struck several chords with me.
 
As a teacher for most of my working life, I have been that person knocking on a door and asking why a child is not at school. I know that it is rarely as simply as a young person saying 'I don’t want to go'. Problems are complex and often not within the remit of one, single organisation to solve.
 
Children witnessing abusive relationships between their parents don’t want to go to school. Leaving the home means leaving someone that they love at risk.  Staying with them may help solve the immediate ...

Listening to the radio as I drove to work I was delighted to hear one of our Kent MPs say that funding to the police should be "ring-fenced”.
 
I couldn’t agree more. As I have said before, losing 700 officers and 500 members of staff cannot go by unnoticed. With more savings to find, there are few areas of policing that can escape the effects of continued cuts.
