Young Carers & Rainbows
We have a Young Carers group for those pupils who have additional responsibilities within their home setting. This may come about for many reasons. It may be that a parent is suffering from a short or long term illness or it may be that a sibling has high additional needs, meaning that there is less time for other family members. Children who belong to the group meet regularly with our Home School Link Worker and will be given all the support they need to ensure that they do not miss out on any of the opportunities open to pupils who do not have these extra responsibilities. If you feel that your child would benefit from belonging to this group, do please contact the class teacher, SENCo or Deputy Head Teacher.
In 2021 St Peter's received the Angel Award in recognition of its provision and sensitivity towards the needs of Young Carers.
Our Home School Link Worker is also trained to run a programme of emotional support for children who have experienced bereavement or parental separation. Identified pupils meet regularly.
