Young Carers

Young carers are children and young persons under the age of 18 who provide care, assistance or support to another family member.


There are different levels of caring and can be both emotional and physical.  Examples of caring roles can be to support someone with depression, substance misuse or someone with a physical or mental disability.   We are not here to judge, we are here to help.


If you feel your child is a young carer please get in touch by emailing the school office on or call on 01491 836341 and arrange to speak to Ms Khan, the Headteacher.


Together we will ensure your child receives the support they need.
