Mayflower High School is committed to develop provision for Young Carers and their families.
We will capture the commitment by widening our provision, building on the needs of the young people and better meet young carers needs by reviewing
Mayflower’s provision for young carers, with a view to ultimately achieving best practice.
How we will achieve this:
The whole school is committed to meeting the needs of young carers so that they can attend and enjoy school in the same way as other students, and achieve their potential.
Appointing a designated young carers school lead with responsibility for young carers and their families. Students and families will be made aware of the identity of this lead and how to contact them to access support.
The school has an effective referral system and strong partnerships in place with relevant external agencies, including referral to young carer agencies providing key workers who will work with young carers and families.
We will strive to achieve best practice for students and families in our school in order to provide them with the best chance of success in their future.
