Southey Green Primary School and Nurseries support Young Carers.
Mrs Howard is the Young Carers Co-ordinator in school.
An assembly is delivered to year 5 and year 6 pupils each year, to identify and raise awareness of young carers. The children complete questionnaires and learn about the role of a young carer. As a school we want to identify and support young carers. We deliver Therapeutic Art sessions following the VOYCE (Views of Young Carers Explained) Programme and support through transition sessions for year 6 pupils. We also work closely with Sheffield Young Carers Workers, who support children in and outside of school.
There is a whole school commitment to Young Carers in school. If you feel your child may be a Young Carer, please contact Mrs Howard on (0114) 2326879. We work closely with Sheffield Young Carers and there is a wide range of support available outside of school too:
