The Young Carers Award

Working towards the Bronze Award

‘Young carers are children and young people who provide regular or ongoing care and emotional support to a family member who is;

  • physically or mentally ill,
  • is disabled
  • or misuses substances’

Our aim at Conyers is to ensure that all students are given every opportunity to reach and exceed their potential.  We recognise that the young carers in our school have added responsibility at home which could hinder these opportunities.

In order to support these students we have weekly drop in sessions. Here our young carers can relax, chat and seek support.

There are several homework sessions available which offer support and a quiet place for young carers to complete their homework in school.

Our young carers have a designated person who they can go to for support. This can either be face to face or via email or secure drop box located in Block 1.
