OUR SCHOOLAll About Me
Young Carers Group
All About Me is our Young Carers Group for children who have additional responsibilities at home in a caring capacity, whether this is supporting parents, grandparents or siblings. We hold 1 session each term and this gives the children an opportunity to do something fun for a couple of hours and spend some time with other children who are dealing with similar situations to them.
Surrey Young Carers Angel Award
Some of our young carers are also part of Surrey Young Carers who have supported us with our group and we are delighted to announce that on Friday 19th November 2021 we were given the Angel Award by Surrey Young Carers. Representatives from Surrey Young carers came into school and presented us with a plaque and a certificate and treated our All About Me group to some doughnuts. We are delighted to be recognised for the group that we run in school and the work that goes into looking after our Young Carers across the school. Please click on this link to find out more about the Angel Award. We even made it into the recent Surrey Young Carers Newsletter
For more information about All About Me, please ask to speak with Marie, our Home School Link Worker, or Emma our Welfare Officer.
All About Me Events for 2022 – 2023
In December we did some Christmas craft activites with the children. At Easter we did some Easter crafts and an Easter Egg hunt, we were also fortunate to have a visitor join us from Surrey Young Carers for our Easter session and she brought some doughnuts for the children to enjoy.
In July we were hoping to be able to go to the park for a picnic but the weather was against us. Instead we played a human verson of Noughts and Crosses in the hall led by Mr De Leonardis – it was lots of fun as the pictures show! We also had some time to talk about what next year would look like for all of the children moving up into the next year group – especially our Year 6’s moving onto Secondary school – we will be sorry to see them go! We are looking forward to being able to do more activities with our All About Me group next year.
