Young Carers


At Brighton Avenue Primary School we want Young Carers to be recognised, feel supported and know they have someone to speak to if they need help.  We have a Young Carers Policy and we are raising awareness with the school amongst the children, staff and governors.

Please feel free to contact either of the above staff if you require further information.

Today is 'Young Carers Action Day'. Yesterday our young carer group gave an assembly to raise awareness of the role of a young carer. They also shared information to help identify if there are any other children in school who may have a caring role at home. If you think your child is a young carer please speak to Gemma who can give you more information about how we can support your child in school.

Did you know? Every Friday we have a drop in for young carers to come and talk about anything that is on their mind - whether that's home life or worries about school. So please, if your child is a young carer, please encourage them to pop in!

Welcome back Young Carers 23/24! For our first session back we made some word art with key words that are meaningful to being a young carer. Each child also received an activity pack to complete across the year which they will be able to take home at the end of school. The children shared they would like to do some cooking for the next meeting so watch this space to see what they created!
