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.
Some of our young carers are also part of Surrey Young Carers who have supported us with our group. We are currently working towards achieving the Angel Award through Surrey Young Carers – watch this space!
For more information about All About Me, please ask to speak with Marie, our Home School Link Worker, or Emma our Welfare Officer.
