Young Carers

Welcome to our school’s young carer support page!

We understand that being a young carer can be a challenging role, and we want to ensure that our students have the support they need to thrive both academically and personally.

Our school has a dedicated team of staff who work closely with young carers and their families to provide support and assistance when needed. We believe that by offering tailored support, young carers can achieve their full potential and have the opportunity to enjoy their childhood.

Our support begins with identifying young carers within our school community. We work with students and families to establish their caring responsibilities and assess any additional support they may need. We recognize that every young carer has unique circumstances and our approach is tailored to meet their individual needs.

We have a range of support services available for young carers, including counseling and mentoring, academic support, and access to outside agencies that can offer specialist advice and support. We also have designated members of staff who act as a point of contact for young carers and their families, ensuring that they always have someone to turn to when they need help.

At our school, we understand that young carers may face additional challenges when it comes to balancing their caring responsibilities with their academic studies. That’s why we work closely with young carers to ensure that they have the support they need to succeed in school. This can include providing additional study sessions, homework clubs, and access to academic resources, and understanding from staff.

In addition to the practical support we offer, we also recognize the importance of providing opportunities for young carers to connect with others who may be in similar situations. We organise a support group for young carers to meet regularly, share experiences and receive support from their peers. We also plan exciting and fun trips throughout the year, giving young carers a chance to take a break from their caring responsibilities and have some fun.

We are proud to recognize the excellent young people who are young carers in our school community. We celebrate their achievements and ensure that they receive the recognition they deserve for their incredible dedication and hard work. At our school, we are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all young carers, and we are always here to offer help and support when it’s needed.

We are proud of the positive young carer support we offer at our school, and we are committed to ensuring that all young carers receive the help and support they need to thrive. If you are a young carer or a family member of a young carer, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to find out more about the support we offer.
