MYTIME Young Carers
MYTIME is a charity with an educational approach in working with young carers. They provide young carers with the tools to combat loneliness and through the School Support Programme will connect them with other young carers, increase their visibility in school and make sure their peers understand their roles.
MYTIME will provide our school with teachers who will work collaboratively with us and embed a support programme that works for each individual carer. By recognizing the need for support allows young carers to achieve academic success and support both their mental and physical health. Young carers are given a voice about how they think they would benefit most.
Schools are perfectly placed to provide support for young carers, due to the depth of relationships that exist between students and their teachers, school relationships with families and the role they play at the heart of their communities.
If you think that your child may be classed as a young carer, please make contact with our school office so that we can offer you will more information.
Mental Health Awareness Week (15th-21st May)
It is mental health awareness week from 15th to 21st May, with a focus on anxiety. To raise awareness within school, we are going to share a range of breathing techniques over the week to embed strategies to combat feeling of anxiety. The children will also be encouraged to share their own techniques they use with others at school and at home. During the week in our PSHE sessions, we will be focusing on who, what and where we feel safe, calm and happy, and how we can lower our anxiety.
