Young Carers

How we can support

The Deanery CE Academy continues to strive to support all of our young people and as part of this we wish to promote our awareness of those amongst us who may be young carers. We are aware that our young people may have additional responsibilities to help care for and support parents, siblings or other family members. We would like to help as much as we can by signposting these young people to appropriate agencies. 


If you or your child feels you would benefit from this support then please do make contact with the school or email the young carers lead Kelly Matthews on
