To celebrate YC Awareness Day today we are running circle time sessions for all classes focusing on who you carers are, the types of things a young carers may have to do, the impact of their caring role, discussing how young carers may feel whilst reinforcing the support we have for young carers in school. This raises awareness of young carers issues and embeds knowledge too!
Our Learning Mentor Rochelle Heslop is taking some young carers from our school to a Young Carers event at Stockport Academy. The young carers at our school will have the opportunity to meet other young carers from different schools whilst participating in some fun activities to celebrate their caring role.
Our Learning Mentor Rochelle Heslop is running a cinema evening with the young carers in our school. They will be having the cinema experience watching a film and eating popcorn!
We will also be joining the:
-A 24 hour tweetathon across Stockport. Using hashtags #StockportYoungCarers and #YoungCarersAwarenessDay. Join the conversation on social media and share what you’re doing for Young Carers in 2018!
This shows our commitment to young carers within our school and highlights the support we have for young carers at Cale Green!
All YC can attend a Young Carers drop in every Tuesday lunchtime with Mrs Heslop.
All YC can self-refer to Mrs Heslop if they feel they need additional support.
Mrs Heslop can provide additional emotional support and homework support in school.
Mrs Heslop can refer to Signpost Young Carers service for additional support if this is required.
The Young Carers participated in a Bird Watch session on Tuesday 6th February with me and Rick Donkin. Here are the birds that we spotted in the playground. Photos to follow.
