At Stewards Academy we recognise that young carers may require additional support to enable them to access the curriculum and school life. We are committed to developing this provision for our young carers. We can offer support in school and will strive to achieve best practice for pupils and their families in order to provide them with the best chance of a successful school life.
The Academy has strong relationships and an effective referral system with local supporting young carers groups, agencies and the school nurse already in place. It is our intention to build on these established relationships by ensuring pupils and staff are aware of the key personnel who can help them overcome any issues or difficulties that may be affecting their progress in school.
Pupils can find information about current Young Carers events and contact numbers on various noticeboards around the academy site including Student Services entrance and outside Dining Room 1.
