Young Carers Page
Are you a Young Carer?
Young carers are children and young people under 18 years old who have somebody in their family who needs extra support due to an additional need. The support given may be practical or emotional .
At Kingfield we work hard at making sure Young Carers situations and needs are understood so that you feel supported.
If you think you may be a Young Carer and the school is not aware of this please talk to your teacher, Ms Sweeney or Lisa (HSLW).
At Kingfield Primary School we support you in your caring role and help you to achieve your best at school.
Getting together for Fun Friday gives young carers the chance to meet together away from their caring responsibilities. There is always a variety of games and activities to enjoy and a chance to get to know other young carers.
The next Fun Friday is:
Friday 13th October 2017 for Year 1, 2 and 3
Friday 20th October 2017 for Year 4, 5 and 6

Kingfield Primary School Win Award for Young Carer Support
Exciting news ... the school has been recognised for its work with young carers and been awarded the ‘Young Carers in School Award’.
Gill, (previous HSLW) reflects, “It has been wonderful see the confidence and resilience of the young carers develop with the support in place for them at school and with needs being understood. They always look forward and have fun together at their ‘Fun Friday Club’ which is so important for them.”
Lily, one of our young carers says, “I like meeting other young carers at school at the Fun Friday club, as they know how I feel.”
