A young carer is someone aged 5-18 who is helping to look after a family member who is ill, disabled, has mental health or addiction problems.

This could be a parent, brother, sister, grandparent or another relative with a physical disability, mental ill health, a learning disability, alcohol/drug misuse issues or a sensory impairment, i.e. deaf or blind.

At Worle Village Primary School we are aware that some of our pupils are young carers.  They often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult.

If you think your child is a young carer and would like any other information or support around these issues, please talk to

Mr A Milne S.E.N.C.O. or Mrs H Paddick, Children's and Parent support worker.

We respect the privacy of our young carers so will only share information about them with people who need to know so that they can offer help.

Please see our parent's notice boards for more information and the Pupil Suppport section below.

 

Pupils Support

A pupil notice board is in the year 5/6 entrance to the hall where you will find stories and pictures of some of the ongoing activities enjoyed by our young carers.
