West Norfolk Carers
Through our TEAMWORK values at North Wootton Academy, we learn to be kind and respectful to all. As a part of this, we spread awareness of groups of people who we can support just by being kind. One of these is Young Carers, which has been highlighted in the media recently.
We are raising awareness of children and young people aged under 18 who help care for a parent or sibling through our phase assemblies and Personal, Social, Health and Emotional learning. We know that children who may have these additional responsibilities may find times at school tricky. Throughout the year we will continue to raise awareness by fundraising, talking in class and through our assemblies.
Together with Miss Buschman and Mrs Barnes, Miss Broughton is working on raising the profile of Young Carers in our Academy. We can signpost children and families to additional support, so if you feel your child may be a Young Carer, then please feel free to contact the school.
