We were delighted to announce we have received the Bronze Award in recognition for all the work and support we do for our young carers at Holland Park.
In January, two key workers from Young Carers came into school to deliver an assembly about the role of a young carer and the impact that it has on them.
As a result of the assembly and a letter sent out to you, several children were identified as young carers and were referred to the support team. We are pleased to report that 12 children are now receiving support from them.
As many of you were aware, on the 30th of January we participated in the Young Carers Awareness Day. Our theme was ‘Funky socks’ and many of the children and staff came to school wearing an interesting collection of colourful socks! It was great to see so many children walking through the gate in a variety of ‘funky socks’! Thank you for your support with this.
All of the children designed a pair of socks, which was made into bunting and strung all around the school. The children also participated in actives during the day and watched video clips about the role of a young carer and all that it involves.
We also held a ‘coffee (or juice!) and cake’ morning for our Young Carers to find out what other support we can give them and how else we can raise awareness of Young Carers. We are hoping that this will be a half termly event.
