St Marys Young Carers Angel Award
Last week, St Marys welcomed Petrina Foster from Surrey Young Carers to present them with the Angel Award.
The Award is made to schools that demonstrate they are ‘young-carer friendly’. Schools have to meet eight standards, checked by the Young Carer staff and young carers, including having a carers’ champion, a carers support group, training for staff, and assemblies about young carers to help all pupils understand the issues the young carers face, as well as support pupils to self-identify and find the help they need.
St Marys were delighted to receive this award, and are very proud of their young carers and grateful for the hard work and compassionate support they receive from the Home School Link Worker (HSLW) and Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA).
