Young Carers in School

Wheatfields Primary 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.
 
"Young Carers are children and young people who often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult" (taken from the Carers Trust, 2012).
