All 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 were delighted to welcome Jenny Hughes from Surrey Young Carers to Buckland Primary on Tuesday 5th March 2024 to be given our Angel Award for the work we do at school with our All About Me group. We first achieved this award in November 2021 and were able to renew this award by showing our ongoing commitment to the Young Carers in our school.

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.

All About Me Events for 2023 – 2024

We held our first event for this academic year and brought all the children together to do some Christmas crafts and eat biscuits! The children are already looking forward to our Annual Easter Egg hunt next term.
