Young Carers

Young Carers Charter

We recognise the importance of putting in our own support network for those children in school who have a carers role at home. We have therefore introduced a Young Carers Club in school where children who are Young Carers can come along and spend some quality time together. We all get together on a termly basis to do activities/ trips.  The children also have the opportunity to attend a half hour drop in session on a Monday lunchtime.

 

Young Carers play an incredible role in the family.  We are really proud to have been one of the first schools in Swindon to achieve the ambassador award for Young Carers  In order to find out more information about ‘Young Carers’, please look at the Swindon website:

There is a 'We Care' Group drop in session every Monday lunchtime between 12.30pm and 1pm in Parsley where you can come and have a chat with Mrs Dudman and other children as well as play games.
