Young Carers Information

Our 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 pupils and achieve their potential.

Our school only shares information with professionals and agencies on a need to know basis in order to support pupils and their families.

Our school actively seeks feedback and ideas from young carers and their families to shape and improve support.

Fairchildes has a designated Young Carers’ School Lead with responsibility for young carers and their families. The current lead is: Dh. Kamalasura who can be contacted at school via phone : 01689 842268 ext 3 or via email

The Young Carers’ School Lead oversees the day-to-day operation of the school’s Young Carers’ Policy, coordinating provision for children who are Young Carers.

The Young Carers’ School Lead is a role within the Inclusion Team. The Inclusion Team can offer further support for young carers.
