At St. Katharine's, we recognise some of our pupils face additional challenges through their role as young carers. We recognise how this may impact on their daily life and we are committed to ensuring that young carers are supported, that their skill-set is celebrated and that they are given the opportunities they deserve in order to flourish. Through our partnership with the charity MyTime we are working to ensure that all staff are trained to identify and support young carers. We want parents of young carers to feel equipped to access appropriate services/support. Our Young Carers policy outlines our approach to supporting young carers, including making referrals to be registered as young carers on their behalf.
