In British English, you can say "my family are" as well, depends whether you are talking about them as a single unit or a collection of individuals.

I don't think it's a silly mistake - as UK English speaker, common usage I think means you should be allowed to write "are inside" and get the pass.

In New Zealand, as with Australia and the UK judging by the other comments, we would often say "My family are inside."
