Lesley Harrington - Family Support Worker and Young Carer Operational Lead
SENDCO and Young Carers SLT Lead
Here at St. Bede’s Catholic Junior School, we are committed to understanding the needs of young carers. Lesley Harrington is our designated lead. Lesley will identify and support the young carer to ensure the right support is in place so they can enjoy and achieve at school.
At St. Bede's Catholic Junior School, we believe that all children and young people have the right to an education, regardless of what is happening at home. When a young person looks after someone in their family for whatever reason, they may need a little extra support to get the most out of school. Our Young Carers Policy says how we will help any pupil who may find themselves in this situation.
Here are some links to help young carers and their families:
