Young Carers In School

Who are young carers?

A young carer is a person under 18 who provides or intends to provide care for another person. As many as one in 12 pupils in the UK could be a young carer.
Often, these children are caring for relatives without their teachers’ knowledge, slipping through the net, undetected by support services. The caring role they carry out means they have unique experiences and demands that impact on their capacity to enjoy and achieve at school.
At St John’s CE Primary School we are committed to supporting Young Carers through our relationship with Carers Trust Cambridgeshire.
In school the following members of staff can be contacted by both pupils and families who maybe carry out a caring role:
  • Operational Lead – Harriet Chapman
  • SLT Lead – Kate Lund
You can refer your child to Carers Trust yourself. Click on the link for more information Carers Trust Cambridgeshire
