Young Carers05 Feb 2018
Last week saw the beginning of our relationship with The Carers Centre, from Hambleton and Richmondshire (www.hrcarers.org.uk). They gave an assembly to pupils in Y7-11 giving information on what a young carer is, the difficulties that they may face and the resulting behaviours. Pupils also engaged in a dedicated PSHCEE lesson with their tutors in which the topic was discussed in more detail, as well as studying some case studies. Barney will now have a dedicated support worker who will be coming to the school, providing drop-in sessions for pupils. If the need arises, we hope to set up a peer support group. If pupils or parents would like any more details, contact Miss Hovington.
